Jining in East China's Shandong province has spared no efforts to push forward the ecological protection and high-quality development in the Yellow River basin, local media reported.
The city has set up a county-level responsibility mechanism to ensure that 100 percent of the water body in the major sector of the South-to-North Water Diversion Project has fairly good quality, while the proportion of State and provincial-controlled surface water with fairly good quality rose to 96 percent.
The local government has stepped up efforts to eliminate water pollution before the start of the flood season, and has taken measures to minimize the impact of flooding on water quality. In addition, the city has strengthened the monitoring and control of soil and air pollution, and a thorough screening has been carried out at solid waste disposal stations within 10 kilometers from the main stream of the Yellow River.
Industrial sectors that produce heavy pollution are undergoing ultralow emission transformations and have substituted traditional raw materials with ultralow volatile organic compounds to reduce pollution.
The city has also tightened the management of diesel-powered vehicles and stepped up dust control at construction sites, coal yards, ports, stone processing factories and parking lots to reduce air pollution.
