China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

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 on Mon­day. The funds will go on pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment of rivers and lakes with good wa­ter qual­ity; pro­tec­tion of drink­ing wa­ter sources; pol­lu­tion pre­ven­tion and con­trol in ma­jor basins; and ground­wa­ter pro­tec­tion. 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.
