With water resources in Beijing being dogged by an over-decades long drought, Water Authorities here in the capital have unveiled new plans for the construction of dozens of new water and sewage treatement plants.

 

CRI's Zhang Wan has more.

Currently, five million tons of sewage is recycled each day by the sewage treatment plants across Beijing. By the end of 2012, the capital has 41 sewage treatment plants, with sewage treatment rate of 96 percent in central districts.

The plan is expected to boost the sewage treatment rate in Beijing's central districts from 96% to 98% by the end of 2015, with an increase of daily sewage treatment capacity by 2.3 million tons. The three-year plan also includes clearing the city's major polluted canals.

Liu Bin, deputy director of the Beijing Water Authority says the plan aims to make the capital's environment better in the future.

"In the following three years, we'll strive to increase the city's sewage treatment rate from the current 83 percent to 90 percent through various measures including carrying out these facilities building projects and strengthening management.

Liu Bin says the main projects in the next three years include sewage treatment facility construction projects and temporary sewage treatment projects. These regular sewage treatment projects mainly refer to water recycling plants construction and reconstruction and supporting pipelines construction, as well as building facilities for sludge harmless process.
