Xiongan’s Cleanup Efforts Don’t Hold Water
The once-dark and smelly water in a pond in Donghegang village, in the northern province of Hebei, has become noticeably clearer after a cleanup that took several months and cost at least 100,000 yuan ($15,100).
Small fish can even be spotted in the water, an auspicious sign of improvement in the environment of this small rural community, according to an engineer who led the pond’s cleanup operations. “But we cannot drop our guard because household wastewater continues flowing into the pond through the outfall below,” the engineer said while pointing to a darker patch of water on an edge of the pond.
