People’s Daily Online, Beijing, June 17 (Reporter Wang Renhong) On June 16, Li Guoying, deputy commander-in-chief of the National Defense General and Minister of Water Resources, presided over a special flood control meeting, analyzing and judging the situation of rain, water and flood conditions in the Pearl River and other basins, and researching and deploying flood control. Work. At present, the Ministry of Water Resources maintains the level III emergency response to flood and drought disaster prevention, and dispatched 5 working groups to the front lines of flood control in Jiangxi, Guangdong and Guangxi to assist and guide the rainstorm and flood prevention work.
Li Guoying pointed out that since the flood season this year, my country has experienced a lot of rainfall and heavy rainfall, and the number of floods in major rivers has been frequent, and it is mainly concentrated in the Pearl River Basin. It is predicted that there will still be a large-scale heavy rainfall process in the southern region in the near future. Numbered floods may occur again in the Xijiang River and Beijiang River, basin-type floods may occur in the Pearl River Basin, and over-alarm floods may occur in the Xiangjiang River and Ganjiang River in the Yangtze River Basin. The flood control situation is very serious.
Li Guoying emphasized that it is necessary to further strengthen forecasting, early warning, rehearsal and plan measures, aiming at “rainfall – runoff – confluence – evolution, total amount – flood peak – process – dispatch, watershed – main stream – tributary – section, technology – material – team – “Organize” four chains, accurately manage and control the whole process and each link of flood defense, carry out analysis and calculation in a rolling manner, finely and precisely schedule reservoirs and other projects, and give full play to the role of reservoirs in retaining floods, reducing peaks and shifting peaks. It is necessary to implement mountain torrent disaster prevention measures, run through the responsibility chain from the vertical to the end and the horizontal to the edge, scientifically adjust the early warning threshold according to the previous rainfall, and release early warning information in a timely manner. , to avoid casualties. It is necessary to strictly control the dam collapse of water reservoirs, especially those in dangerous reservoirs, direct the rainstorm warning information to the “three responsible persons” for flood control of small reservoirs, urge them to take up their posts immediately, make preparations for flood flooding in advance, and implement emptying of reservoirs, inspection of spillways, and protection of dam crests. Dam slopes, excavation of temporary spillways and other measures, in principle, all dangerous reservoirs will be operated empty, and it is indeed difficult to implement measures to prevent overflow and dam failure one by one. It is necessary to fully implement the responsibilities of the river basin general administration, local governments, project management units and flood control positions, strengthen the unified command of river basin flood control, joint water engineering scheduling, and organize dyke inspections and emergency protection to ensure flood control safety.
