The reservoir in Rizhao, east China's Shandong Province, has seen its water-level drop so low due to drought, that its bottom has been exposed, killing numerous fish and aquatic life.

This is the area's first severe drought in 20 years, according to local residents.

The data shows that the overall volume of the reservoir is 318 million cubic meters.

Being the water source and the pivot for flood protection in Rizhao, the reservoir has the function of irrigation and generating electricity.
