Massive flood control project racing against rainy season

Mar 20, 2017

A 3.5-billion-yuan (US$5.1 billion) flood control project in the western part of Jinshan is near completion. It is the largest water project ever undertaken in the district.

The project involves 22 waterways in Zhujing, Fengjing, Langxia and Lvxiang towns and the construction of 188 kilometers of embankments.

About 70 percent of the project will be done before the flood season starts in June and the remaining part will be finished by yearend.
