Taipei Water customers given break on water bill due to storm

Taipei, Aug. 11 (CNA) The Taipei Water Department (????????) said Tuesday that it will not charge customers for three days of water after Typhoon Soudelor battered Taiwan on Saturday and disrupted water supplies. Explaining that the poor quality of the city's water following the storm had inconvenienced the public, the department said it has decided not to charge for the water supplied from Aug. 8 when Typhoon Soudelor hit Taiwan the hardest to Aug. 10. The adjustment will show up in water bills in September or October. According to the department, the relatively high turbidity of Taipei's drinking water after the typhoon, which triggered a wave of bottled water purchases, has improved, and the city's water quality has returned to normal.
