On New Year’s Eve, workers were paving the trestle with tiles in Meixie Lake of Sanhu Lianjiang, Jiayu County.
The phenomena including the direct discharge of sewage and the dumping of rubbish have given rise to the poor quality of Meixie Lake. But this lake situates in the central area of the county town, so poor water quality may have an adverse effect on the city image. Therefore this county has invested 47.8 million yuan to launch the Highway Bridge of Sanhu Lianjiang Reservoir to Meixie Lake Bridge section ecological sewage interception project to kick off the construction of such projects as the sewage interception, dredging, circum-lake landscapes, road, and supporting infrastructures, so as to effectively prevent water pollution, protect the water ecosystem and improve the living environment.
