WHDZ cleans up its lakes, rivers

Updated: 2018-10-11

Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone (WHDZ) in Wuhan, central China's Hubei province, has initiated all-day monitoring and management of the zone's rivers, lakes, and ditches.

On the morning of Oct 8, a director of the zone's river and lake management office uploaded a photo taken by a drone which inspected Niuhai Lake, showing that there was a pile of rubbish left by a barbecue on the grassland by the lake.

After half an hour, the rubbish was cleared by staff members responsible for the area.

Such timely disposal is possible thanks to the zone's constant monitoring and management system of its lakes –– the first system of its kind in Wuhan.

WHDZ has recently released plans to strengthen the management and maintenance of the zone's rivers and lakes, covering 16 rivers and 26 lakes on the municipal-level protection list, as well as 99 ditches and 16 other water bodies in the zone, with an annual budget of nearly 30 million yuan ($4.33 million).

In addition, the zone has also put forward six essential aspects of the management of rivers and lakes –– intercepting pollution, clearing trash, strengthening riverbanks, protecting aquaculture, removing sludge, and cleaning water.

WHDZ is currently promoting these six essential aspects to manage water in the zone, in order to improve the local environment for residents.
