On-site inspection of the clean-up and remediation of the Yangtze River's shoreline utilization project completed by CWRC
In order to promote the protection of the Yangtze River and do its best in the management and protection of rivers and lakes under the new situation, the Changjiang Water Resources Commission organized and carried out on-site inspections of the clean-up and rectification of the Yangtze River's shoreline utilization project from late August to early September.
In accordance with the requirements of the Ministry of Water Resources, the CWRC is responsible for on-site verification of the completion of clean-up and remediation of the Yangtze River's main river shoreline utilization projects in 9 provinces (municipalities directly under the Central Government) including Sichuan, Yunnan, Chongqing, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Anhui, Jiangsu, and Shanghai. In 2,441 suspected violations of laws and regulations, full-coverage inspections were conducted on projects that were dismantled, banned, did not meet the management and control requirements of shoreline functional areas, or might have major flood control impacts. The sampling rate of other items shall not be less than 50%. From late August to early September, on the basis of 1,000 verified projects, CWRC sent 20 working groups with 60 people to conduct on-site verification of 797 rectification and regulation projects (including the review of 55 verification projects last year).
Since its launch in December 2017, the special inspection action for the protection and utilization of the shoreline of the Yangtze River has been carried out in three stages: self-inspection, key inspection, and clean-up and remediation. The clean-up and remediation phase has been entered in October 2018. The on-site inspection is a large-scale inspection before the clean-up and remediation ends. The verification team makes full use of the CWRC mobile version of the "Water Conservancy Map" shoreline verification thematic system (version 2.0) to fill in the verification results, collect photos and videos, and upload related documents. At the same time, it uses drones for aerial photography, which greatly improves its work Efficiency and quality. After the on-site verification, the River Lake Bureau organized an internal review of the verification results, carefully sorting out the problems, and promptly feeding back to the localities. On this basis, the work summary report of the special inspection action was compiled and submitted to the Ministry of Water Resources.
