 Jiangxi continued high temperature: 2 million 800 thousand acres of crops drought, 140 thousand people drinking water difficulties


CCTV reporter Xu Zhihao: where I am now is the star Liang reservoir in Shangli County, Pingxiang, Jiangxi. Now the total capacity of the reservoir is 7.71 million cubic meters, the water inside is less than 1 million cubic meters, less than one seventh of the total capacity. Basically in a state of an empty library. Local residents told me that at this time of the year, the water surface of the place where I am now is about five meters above my head. Now not only is there no water in the whole area of my station, but you can see the land at the bottom of the reservoir under my feet. Due to long drought and lack of water, a serious cracking has occurred.

CCTV reporter Xu Zhihao: and the cause of the serious water shortage of the reservoir is due to the rainfall of Shangli county from 1 to July this year, compared to the average of the previous year, it is to be less than 60%. And especially after June, the rainfall is very low.

The long-term drought caused the reservoir to bottom out, which not only affected the normal water consumption of local residents, but also affected the local agricultural production.

CCTV reporter Xu Zhihao: I am now in a rice field in Meilin Village, the town of Xiangdong District, Pingxiang, Jiangxi. As you can see, although this paddy field now looks like a green field on the surface, in fact the drought here is very serious. You can look at this paddy field, because the long drought and lack of water, the entire paddy field has cracked. This crack can put down my two fingers. The width of the crack is very wide. And on the ground we can see a lot of white, all because of the drought and the lack of water and dead rice, including grass. And the residents told me that this is the key period for the growth and development of rice here. Because of such a severe drought, the paddy field may now be eliminated this year. In Meilin Village, the area of rice paddy like this is about more than 1000 mu.

In order to cope with the drought, Pingxiang has begun to transport purified water to the residents of arid areas every day to ensure the normal life of the residents. In addition, the local area also alleviated the drought by drilling wells, collecting spring water and artificial rainfall. According to the statistics of the office of the general command of flood control and drought resistance in Jiangxi Province, up to now, the drought area in Jiangxi province is more than 2 million 800 thousand mu, and more than 140 thousand people are difficult to drink and drink.
