The first phases of the upgrading will take around five years and focuses on residential buildings where the water quality is low due to substandard and leaking pipes. The districts that will be covered under the first phase are urban villages in Futian, Luohu, Yantian and Nanshan districts. The upgrade will involve 300,000 households or 30 percent of the city total.
