Water pollution control measures to be tightened

9 May 2012
China is strengthening pollution controls in key rivers and lakes this year, said Zhou Shengxian, minister of environmental protection. He was speaking at a regional meeting on the environment held each year between China, South Korea and Japan.

Statistics from the ministry showed nearly half of China’s environmental accidents between 2008 and 2010 were caused by water pollution, reported China Daily.

Pollution control in key rivers and lakes is part of the 12th five-year environmental protection plan (2011-15), which states that water quality in Yellow River and Bohai Bay will be improved.

The draft of a national plan on pollution control in key rivers and lakes said about Rmb292bn will be invested in pollution control projects along key rivers and lakes. By 2015, most factories in coastal areas will be upgraded to meet strict environment protection and pollutant discharge standards, according to the draft.
