Central government allocates 2.5 bln yuan for rural water ecology

Xinhua,May 06, 2020 Adjust font size:

The central government has allocated 2.5 billion yuan (about 354 million U.S. dollars) to 55 pilot counties to fight rural water pollution.

The Ministry of Water Resources and the Ministry of Finance have announced the first batch of 55 pilot counties for water system connectivity and comprehensive improvement of rural water systems.

The 55 pilot counties will carry out projects to improve rural water conditions from 2020 to 2021 with support from the central government.

In October 2019, the two ministries jointly launched the pilot work of water system connectivity and comprehensive improvement of rural water systems. After a competition and expert review, the 55 pilot counties were finally chosen.

The ministries will guide the pilot counties in water conservation and water system connectivity, as well as pollution source control, river and lake management and other systematic control measures. Enditem
