Issue Date: 20-Jun-2008

Description: 明治31(1898)年、長崎市は長崎村、戸町村、山里村、淵村、小榊村のそれぞれ一部を編入して人口が増加したため、本河内貯水池だけでは不十分となり、写真の西山貯水池を設けた。800万石の貯水能力があり、水道により市内に水を供給しコレラの撲滅と火災時の威力で市民から高く評価された。 / The population of Nagasaki City increased in 1898 when parts of Nagasaki Village, Tomachi Village, Yamazato Village, Fuchi Village, and Kosakaki Village were amalgamated. Nishiyama Reservoir, seen here, was built because the water supply from Hongochi Reservoir was insufficient for the larger community. Nishiyama Reservoir, which had a capacity of 8,000,000 koku (14.4 million liters), supplied water to all households, helped in the eradication of cholera, and was effective in extinguishing fires. Consequently, people appreciated the reservoir greatly.
