— Presidential candidate Ma Yingjeou pledged that if elected he would take steps to protect the water supply in Taoyuan in case of typhoons.

Ma's comments came at the same time that Typhoon Krosa hit Taiwan.

The typhoon left the water in the Shihmen reservoir too muddy to be treated for human consumption.
