Hebei province in North China will do an annual evaluation and assessment of the province’s water quality and water pollution control over a four-year period, from 2017 to 2020, Hebei Daily reported on March 14.

The action is targeted at tackling water pollution and ensuring water safety.

The evaluation and assessment system will be based on the current 50 measures for water pollution prevention and control, which have detailed regulations on waste water treatment and were issued by Hebei province at the beginning of 2016.

As for cities that do not reach the standard during the annual assessment, they will not have the opportunity to apply for new waste water discharge projects; and all the waste water treatment facilities will need to be improved to reach the specified standard.
