The water level of Poyang Lake broke through the 12 meter dry water line for the first time this year

April 24, 2023

At 4:00 p.m. on April 23, the water level of Xingzi Station, the landmark hydrometric station of Poyang Lake, rose to 12.01 meters, and the area of river water in the lake area expanded to 1450 square kilometers, with a volume of 2.92 billion cubic meters. This is the natural landscape of Poyang Lake, which has broken 12 meters since August 6, 2022. It will take 261 days to stand on the 12 meters dry water line again, saying goodbye to the "dry water line" and ushering in the "water and sky are one color". At present, the rising water level of Poyang Lake has greatly alleviated the difficulties of drinking water production for some people along the lake, and improved the navigation capacity of the waterway in the lake area.
