Shanghai, China’s biggest city with about 23 million people, plans to build two more plants in the Nanhui area to add cleaner water supplies from the Qingcaosha reservoir.
The facilities will have the capacity to provide 600,000 cubic meters of water per day to meet demand arising from growth and economic development in the area, the Shanghai Water Authority said in a website statement. No costs were given.
The water authority’s announcement comes after the Hangtou and Huinan plants at Nanhui started operating this month, each with a daily capacity of 240,000 cubic meters. The Qingcaosha reservoir currently supplies cleaner water to about 13 million residents in the city, the authority said.
