    Basic construction of Jinshan's largest flood control project completed

     

    Basic construction of Jinshans largest flood control project has been completed recently and its channel and greening work will be carried out later.

    The project kicked off in 2014 at the cost of 4 billion yuan (US$625 million) to relieve the great flood pressure in southwestern Jinshan during the typhoon season.

    It extends 174 kilometers covering Fengjing, Zhujing, Lvxiang and Langxia, the four towns located in low-lying areas.

    "The new dam wall now can stand the biggest flood that could happen in a century in the drainage basin and the biggest flood in 50 years in the region," said Zhang Haijun, a staff member with the district water management authorities.
