2018-08-09 09:35:21

Recently, the journalist learned from the Provincial Department of Environmental Protection that we have good news again in the ecological environment quality: as of the end of June this year, of the 221 province-controlled water quality sections, no Class V water had been found, and Class I to III water sections had accounted for 82.8%, 1.8% more than those of last year. In the 11 cities with districts, the days with good air quality on average accounted for 82.2%, 0.5% higher than those of last year.

 

Since this year, our province has successively launched special enforcement actions such as "protecting the blue sky", "protecting the water and cutting off the pollution" and "clearing the waste land", and the quality of Zhejiang's ecological environment has been continuously improved.

  

Water management in Zhejiang never stops. In the first half of this year, Class I to Ⅲ water quality section accounted for 82.8%. This is the highest ratio of Class I to III water quality sections of the surface water over the same period in the province since 2010.

 

Our efforts in water management have never stopped throughout the five years. As of the end of June this year, of the 221 province-controlled water quality sections, no Class V sections had been found. The cross sections that meet functional requirements accounted for 86.4%, increasing 1.8% on a year-on-year basis. Compared with the same period last year, of the 103 water quality sections to be assessed by national authorities, one more Class I to III section is added.

 

The water quality in our province has turned from turbid to clear, from clean to beautiful. In the first half of this year, we overcame the influence of less rainfall and other objective factors and worked hard to build "zero direct discharge area of sewage" and "beautiful rivers and lakes".
