River Project to Clean a 9 Kilometer Section of the Longgang River

River Project to Clean a 9 Kilometer Section of the Longgang RiverThe city is planning to build a wetland park along the Longgang river after the phase two of the river treatment project is completed by the end of this year.

The phase two river project has a total investment of 1.02 billion yuan and began last month. The project will clean a 9 kilometer section of the Longgang river, create a rainwater storage pool and a wetland park. The Longgang river runs northeast from Wutong Mountain from Shenzhen to Huizhou. A 10.9 kilometer stretch of the river was previously cleaned during the first phase project that was conducted last year.

The Henggang sewage treatment plant located in the upper reaches can process around 200,000 tons of water sewage a day. The Hengling Plant located in the lower reaches is still under construction and, once finished, will the capacity of processing around 800,000 tons of water sewage each day. Both plants have sufficient capacity to handle the current 510,000 tons of sewage that is discharged into the Longgang River.

The banks along Longgang river offer great scenic views now that phase one of the project has been completed and will be the venue for the next dragon boat race for the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival.
