Affected by the heavy rainfall in early July, the water level at the Three Gorges Reservoir reached 156 meters, 11 meters higher than the flood control level in a short run. The reservoir has taken measures to get enough storage capacity. The water level is back to 146.53 meters approximating to the flood control level.
