The Department of Housing and Urban-Rural Development issued a statement recently, calling for the kick-off of all “black and stinky” water treatment projects in urban areas of Anhui province.

China rates its water in six grades, with the lowest “below grade 5” considered unusable even for industrial or irrigation purposes and described as “black and stinky” water.

The eastern Chinese province strives to complete treatment projects at all urban “black and stinky” sites by 2020 to meet requirements from the State Council, China’s cabinet, and the provincial government.

As of December 31, 2017, the province launched 163 urban water clean-up projects, of which 137 achieved initial success. More than 60 percent of “black and stinky” water were cleaned up. The province aims to raise the number to 80 percent this year.

The department called upon cities across the province to set up long-term mechanism for improving urban water quality, stressing that continued efforts must be made after initial success was achieved. For example, a river chief system, which sees government officials appointed to oversea water pollution control, is being introduced for each “black and stinky” site.
