Minxin River


Shijiazhuang’s water resource is very indigent and the volume per capita is only one fifteenth of the state average standard.

Due to the lack of surface water resource, Shijiazhuang has to explore ground water to supply to the citizens. As a result, the funneled area of ground water becomes bigger and bigger. Moreover, the lack of water resource leads to the bad environment, which affects the economic development of the city. Hence, Minxin River project was started up in order to improve the city’s environment, develop economy and improve people’s living level.
