City Sewer Systems to be Completed in October of Next Year
The water affairs bureau said that construction of several sewer systems in the city’s bay area in Nanshan won’t be completed until October of 2014. But residential development in the area have already started without even submitting drainage plans that is needed for approval since sewage from these residential development discharges straight to the bay untreated.
Property developers can only start development once they have completed and given approval for their facilities for drainage, water, electricity, telecommunications, gas, and roads. In shirt any land are no allowed development until all these are done. Even if several drainages system is completed it still needs to be evaluated and approved.
The city water bureau plans to construct networks in northern Houhai to connect with Chuangye Road area that connect to the sewage treatment plant in Nanshan. Drainage networks in southern Houhai will connect to the plant using networks in the Gongye Eight Road area. These projects are large in scale and some residents don’t support its construction.
The bureau was forced to construct temporary sewage treatment plants in Houhai to deal with sewage problem while the new sewage and drainage measures is planned and will take effect next year that will stop any developers from building before and infrastructure is completed.
