On March 22, the publicity campaign called “Water Nourishing Weihai” – 2019 “World Water Day and China Water Week” – was launched in Weihai City. The City leaders ZHANG Hongwei, LI Wenji, GAO Shuliang and LI Shufang attended the event. GAO Shuliang pointed out that all departments and agencies at all levels should, by taking this event as an opportunity, bear in mind what the General Secretary XI Jinping enthusiastically said that “Weihai should develop towards an exquisite city”, and should meet the requirements of the municipal party committee and municipal government for fully assuring water security. He said departments and agencies at all levels should enhance cooperation, and jointly manage to do the “five issues”: to broadly store water, to trap rainfall water and other externally-introduced water, to desalinate sea water, to use reclaimed water, and to treat sewage water. The theme of this year’s “China Water Week” is “to adhere to water conservation priority and strengthen water resources management”. In recent years, the city has adhered to water conservation priority, and taps to new source of water. So far, the city has invested more than 5 billion yuan to implement a number of major projects such as rainwater resource utilization and river and reservoir greening and remediation. It has successfully won the approvals to create a pilot city for water-saving social innovation in China, so to ensure the city’s economic and social development.
