Funds to fight wa­ter pol­lu­tion

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China will spend 430 bil­lion yuan ($64.6 bil­lion) on about 4,800 projects to im­prove the qual­ity of its scarce wa­ter re­sources, the Min­istry of En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion an­nounced.

The funds will go to pro­tect wa­ter qual­ity in rivers and lakes, drink­ing wa­ter sources and to pre­vent pol­lu­tion.

A wa­ter pol­lu­tion preven­tion plan pub­lished in April 2015 promised to ban pol­lut­ing pa­per mills, oil re­finer­ies, pes­ti­cide pro­duc­ers and other in­dus­trial plants by the end of 2016.
