Three Gorges water storing cycle begins

17 September 2014
The water storing cycle at the Three Gorges Reservoir started officially on 15 September, according to the Yangtze River Administration under the Ministry of Transport.

Contingency plans have been put in place to safeguard shipping over the coming weeks, but officials believe that the ample rainfall that fell in the second half of August and first half of September has provided a promising start. The water level at the reservoir is expected to reach 165 metres by the end of this month and 175 metres by the end of October or early November.

Earlier, on 3 September, a major research project was carried out between the Three Gorges and Gezhouba dams where the currents were particularly swift and therefore posing dangers for shipping. The data being collected and analysed through this project will be used to reassess the safety threshold for shipping.
