On December 27, Zhejiang completed the inspection and acceptance work concerning inferior Class V water elimination in 11 cities (with districts), declaring that the province has basically cleared up inferior Class V water. Stinky and smelly water is almost a thing of the past now.
As a foregoer in solving the disturbing water environment issue, Zhejiang has moved into a new phase of green development, completing the mission as specified in the Action Plan for Prevention and Treatment of Water Pollution. The water quality in eight major water systems is good, with over 80 % of the province-controlled cross sections reaching Class III or above.
Zhejiang is a economically developed province, but its water environment had been somewhat damaged before, with the result that the rivers and lakes used to be commonly not suitable for swimming. In response to people’s ever-growing need for a beautiful ecological environment, the province, sticking to General Secretary Xi Jinping’s green development concept, namely, Lucid Water and Lush Mountains are Invaluable Assets, launched the project “"Five Water Governance" in 2013, which was taken as a breakthrough to push forward transformation and upgrading. By the end of 2016, Zhejiang cleared up around 11000 km garbage lakes, smelly and stink lakes in its effort to eliminate black, stinky and dirty sensual pollution.
At the beginning of this year, Zhejiang raised standards and took the initiative to comprehensively eliminate inferior Class V water, aiming at eliminating inferior class-V water in 33 province and city controlled cross sections while renovating ditches and ponds to further improve the environment.
