China tackles water pollution through video monitoring

A video monitoring system has been installed in 160 water treatment plants in across northwest China's Liaoning province. The scheme is designed to help local environmental protection authorities conduct 24-hour real-time monitoring of water quality. CCTV's Guan Yang filed this report.

Highlights:

  • The World Bank warns of “catastrophic consequences” for future generations because of water pollution and measures for monitoring sewage water are crucial in tackling the problem.
  • Liaoning has found the answers to those questions in a real-time monitoring program for household sewage water treatment. It’s the first of its kind in the Chinese Mainland.
  • If an illegal discharge occurs, the bureau can then acquire real-time data like ph-Value and Total-Nitrogen from a particular plant. 
  • By limiting the amount of pollutants before they’re dumped into rivers, pollution is minimized at the very beginning.
  • If Liaoning’s move proves to be effective, the province will roll out a similar program for its industrial waste water treatment in the near future.

      I would like to understand why cctv reserves itself the right to broadcast news from their viewpoint in america while in china no foreign news source is allowed on tv, not even the net. Can anyone explain?

        You can watch CNN in China mainland if you pay extra money
        Also, Chinese has much more understanding of West than western’s understanging of China

          No, a chinese cannot legally watch CNN, even if he wants to pay for it.
          no, chinese do NOT have a generally better understanding of the west then westerners of china. I wonder how you fabricated that groundless statement?
