MMP: Draught will stay in the South-East

South-Eastern Romania will suffer from draught in the future too, and daily average river discharges will increase only in the western half of the country, the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MMP) announces, quoted by Mediafax. The weather forecast on average term estimates that, in the future, it will rain mostly in the west, center and north of the country. As for hydrological draught, rivers are at 30-50 pc of their monthly multi-annual average discharge values, with the lowest figures (under 30 pc) being registered by the following rivers: all three Cris, Timis, Moravita, Caras, Nera, Cerna, Jiu, lower Olt, Ramnicu Sarat and Barlad. Although water supply for the population is not at risk now, “with the average filling coefficient of lakes being 55.5 pc” the Ministerial Committee for Emergency Situations (CMSU) of MMP set in place several measures meant to ensure a reasonable use of hydropower plants’ lakes managed by the ‘Apele Romane’ National Administration and by SC Hidroelectrica SA, in order to secure the water needed by population and hydropower plants.
