Zhejiang Province Fully Prohibits Exploitation of Groundwater
In view that the excessive exploitation of groundwater results in serious land subsidence in some areas, Zhejiang Province has introduced several measures recently to protect water resources. It is stated that, except the domestic water supply in the areas without water supply networks, exploitation of groundwater is fully prohibited before the end of 2010 so as to protect groundwater resources, control land subsidence and prevent geological disasters; red lines will be set up to control the total amount and the efficiency of water utilization, with any water-waste behavior touching the red lines being investigated and dealt with; and the index of water-saving will be incorporated into the provincial assessment system of energy saving and emission reduction.
