The Qianshan River Basin consists of one river and two streams (namely, Qianshan River, Guangchang S tream, and Hongwan Stream), with a total length of 23.08 km.

The “Qianshan river basin management project” will comprehensively implement the “clearer water” strategy of Qianshan River. It is planned that an investment of 5 billion RMB will be made from 2015 to 2020.  Specific areas of work include pollution control at the source, rainwater and flood management and river bank renovation. Zhuhai municipal government formally issued the “Comprehensive Improvement Project Plan for the Qianshan River Basin Environment (2013-2017)”, which proposed that by 2017 the water quality in Zhuhai section of Qianshan River should be improved and restored to reach the standards of class III water body. The goal is to achieve the target of “clean water, green bank and beautiful scenery”.
