The water level of Three Gorges Dam has reached 171.32 meters on 8:00, October 13th. The 175 meters experimental water storage entered into the countdown of the last four meters. To ensure the safety of Yangtze River bridges and navigation, Chongqing Maritime Safety Administration has adopted a series of measures, especially closely monitoring the ultrahigh vessels sailing on Three Gorges.

Since the launch of the 175 meters water storage of Three Gorges Reservoir on September 10, the water level keeps rising gradually. The safe navigation height lowers with the rising of the water level since there are many bridges or other constructions crossing on Yangtze River. Both the safety of the vessels and the crossing-river constructions are threatened.

According to Chongqing Maritime Safety Administration, they are closely monitoring the ultrahigh vessels so as to ensure the safety of the navigation, Yangtze River bridges and other crossing-river constructions. They also carried out new height standard for the vessels navigate on upper reaches of Three Gorges Dam. The vessels higher than the standard would not be permitted to sail into Three Gorges Reservoir.

At the same time, the Maritime Safety Administration also strengthens their services of the safety information. They would convey the latest information of the water condition along Three Gorges to the sailing vessels through various ways. They also provide the relatively higher vessels with guidance and help so as to ensure the navigation safety of the vessels and safety of Yangtze River bridges.

It is reported that there is no navigation accident on Three Gorges under the administration of Chongqing since the 175m experimental water storage of Three Gorges Dam started on September 10.
