Kanto residents may face summer water shortages as low reserves




"The early end to this year’s rainy season has put the Kanto region at risk of a water shortage this summer, with record-low water levels reported Tuesday at dams along the Tone River, the government is warning. Total water reserves at eight dams along the nation’s second-longest river stood at an all-time low of 232 million cu. meters for the date of July 9, or three-quarters of the average level, according to the land ministry."
