According to a government report released by Guangzhou government, the quality of the environment in Guangzhou has improved. 8.13% more tap water in Guangzhou reached the national tap water standard. The report also claims that air pollution has been decreasing for the past 3 years.
In order to have a better source for tap water supplies, Guangzhou will introduce water from the Xijiang River.
Guangzhou will accelerate the construction of the Xijiang River Water Introduction Project, so that Guangzhou citizens can drink water from Xijiang in 2010.
