Yesterday, our city held a teleconference on flood control and drought relief work to fully deploy this year's flood control and drought relief work. Mayor Tan Chengxu stressed in his speech that it was necessary to thoroughly study and implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech on strengthening the prevention and control of natural disasters, firmly establish the people-centered development idea, resolutely overcome paralysis and fluke mentality, stand ready and unite as one, do a solid job in flood control and drought relief, and fully safeguard the safety of people's lives and property.
 
According to the forecast of the meteorological department, the city's average rainfall in flood season this year will be 1 ~ 20% more than that in the normal year. Among them, the eastern region and the northern mountainous region will be 20-30% more than the year before, the probability of extreme, sudden and local severe convective weather will increase, and the situation of flood prevention and disaster reduction will be very severe. In response, Tan Chengxu urged all departments at all levels to further enhance their sense of mission, responsibility and urgency in flood control and drought relief work, focus on the problems and shortcomings in flood control and drought relief work, consider disasters more fully, deploy work more solidly, formulate measures more comprehensively, and ensure that various tasks of flood control and drought relief were implemented carefully.
 
Tan Chengxu stressed that all regions should focus on key tasks, pay close attention to the implementation of the work, adhere to prevention first, combine prevention with fighting and rescue, and resolutely win the battle of flood prevention and drought relief, disaster prevention and mitigation. Firstly, all departments should step up the investigation and rectification of potential risks, thoroughly check the dangerous sections and weak links that may affect the safety of this year's flood season, and implement rectification measures item by item to ensure that there are no dead corners, blind areas and loopholes. Secondly is to strengthen the monitoring and early warning of meteorological disasters, strengthen the monitoring and early warning of disastrous weather forecast and rainfall, geological disasters, storm surges, real-time grasp of the situation, danger, disaster, scientific command and dispatch, strengthen work guidance and supervision and inspection. Thirdly, it is necessary to strengthen the management of water conservancy projects, strengthen the safety supervision of water conservancy facilities, strictly implement the scheduling scheme, ensure the smooth flow of river flood, and promptly implement preventive measures. Fourthly, it is necessary to scientifically prevent mountain torrent geological disasters, strengthen the investigation and rectification of potential risks, widely publicize disaster prevention knowledge, and strictly implement the safety flood prevention measures for tailings ponds. Fifthly, to do a good job in urban flood control and drainage work, improve the urban flood control and drainage emergency plan, strengthen the construction and maintenance of flood control and drainage facilities, strengthen the risk analysis and real-time monitoring of urban waterlogging prone areas. Sixthly, we must actively and effectively defend against typhoon disasters and establish a fast and effective security mechanism. Last but not least, we must adhere to the "two-pronged approach" of flood control and drought relief, closely monitor the drought changes in local areas, and further improve the "drought relief plan" and the "urban and rural emergency water supply plan".
 
Tan Chengxu called on all levels and departments to strengthen organization and leadership, compact their responsibilities, strengthen emergency protection, pay attention to publicity and guidance, strictly enforce work discipline, form joint efforts, firmly grasp the initiative and leadership in flood control and drought relief work, and effectively enhance the cohesion and fighting capacity of flood control and drought relief work.
