Water resources is the foundation for people's living and development. With the development of China's economy, the shortage of city water resources and water pollution have seriously hindered the sustainable development of the society. Although in recent years, our country pay more attention to the prevention and controlling of water pollution, but along with our accelerating in urbanization process, the urban water supply and water pollution are increasing, all these puts forward higher requirements in city water pollution control work.
At present, the main problems in the protection of urban water supply and water pollution control are: 1. Centralized wastewater treatment is difficult. China's urban wastewater has the characteristics of large quantity and wide range. Although, at present, China has increased the centralized management of urban wastewater, but because of technology, money and management reasons, many urban wastewater is still not centralized treatment. 2. The shortage of wastewater monitoring. At present, China is roundly implementing "river head system", that is local head as the main person responsible for the local river, undertake the management and protection of the local rivers and lakes. However, we have not enough specific monitoring data, when water pollution occurs, who will be responsible? 3. Public supervision mechanism is weak.
I am in the Pearl River Water Resources Protection Bureau, this is a institution of the Pearl River Water Resources Commission of the Ministry of Water Resources. My bureau is mainly responsible for the management and protection of water resources in the Pearl River. At present in the water resource protection and water pollution prevention, we have done a lot of work, including: the implementation of registration in the sewage; in the junction of two provinces set up automatic water quality monitoring station; promoting the provincial cooperation system. The implementation of these measures has played a very positive role in management and protection of water resources in the Pearl River basin.
