Hengtong Checks Flood Damage with Speed and Technology
SUZHOU, China, July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

1,000 km fiber optic cables were delivered recently by Hengtong within 48 hours 
to Jiangxi Province for its urgent demand of flood control-related 
telecommunication system restoration.

Located in a pivotal position that connects the middle and lower streams of the 
Yangtze River, and with the most winding part of the river in its domain, 
Jiangxi Province historically holds the key to the success of the flood control 
of the Yangtze River basin.

Devastated by the recent torrential rains, Jiangxi escalated the Emergency 
Response from Level IV all the way to the highest Level I within one week in 
early July, during which period its many transport and communication 
infrastructures were almost wrecked.

Receiving the urgent call for assistance on July 13, Hengtong raced against 
time and finished producing and delivering the supply in shortest order, which 
will hopefully help restore the communication system for the flood-devastated 

Hengtong is shoring up the flood repair work in more ways.

With downpours unseen for decades, this year's seasonal rains, or the "Plum 
Rains" in the vernacular, are posing a critical danger of flood to the Yangtze 
River basin. The city of Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, saw since July 
18 its Yangtze River water level overtaking the historical highest registered 
in 1954.

No better is the case around the Taihu Lake, the third largest fresh water lake 
in China and the cradle of Hengtong. A significant reservoir for Yangtze, the 
water exceeded the security level and reached the the fourth highest in history 
as early as on July 17. The Water Resources Department of Jiangsu Province 
raised the Flood Alert to Red (the highest level) for the lake.

Born on the shore of Taihu, Hengtong is paying back to the "mother lake" in the 
smart form of an aqua-sensing system that keeps observation on the health of 
the water body.

A demonstration project for environment protection, this system is contributing 
to the local flood prevention and control work with a network of 9 stations 
observing using big-data-based analysis of the water's quality, level, speed 
and rate of flow, etc.

All statistics can be checked on a mobile device, this system provides handy 
tools to rein in the deluge in a scientific and targeted manner, with the local 
counter-flood capacity thus lifted.

What are "Plum Rains"

Plum Rains, or Yellow Plum Rains, is the nickname given to the annual rainy 
season in South and East China. Mostly along the Yangtze River basin, it also 
extends down to Taiwan Province and up to Japan where it is called Bai-u. When 
its heyday hovers over the Yangtze River area from June to July, the plums have 
rightly turned yellow and ripened, which gives the season a pleasant flavor. 
After the Plum Rains come the dog days of summer.
