Soldiers and armed police have completed a channel to drain a reservoir that has reached dangerous levels along the Golmud River in Qinghai province.

After repairing collapsed banks along some sections of the Golmud River, authorities say its lower reaches are ready to be discharged. The river's banks subsided as soldiers were about to begin discharging the floods. Hundreds of soldiers threw sand bags into the river, trying to prevent its banks from collapsing.

Yin Juntao, Commissar, Qinghai Armed Police, said, "We have completed a channel in lower reach of the Golmud river. The headquarter will decide the time for flood discharge. We must ensure the bank does not collapse along the river. "
