Bank of China Yunnan Branch has signed an agreement with Kunming Lake Dianchi Investment Company and will offer a CNY4 billion loan to support the latter's efforts in cleaning Lake Dianchi and carrying out relevant marsh land projects.
It is learned that the Lake Dianchi pollution control project involves diverting the polluted water of the lake to the scheduled River Yunihe River Waste Water Plant, River Baiyuhe Waste Water Plant, Kunyang Waste Water Plant, and Haikou Polluted Water Plant and construct four rain water processing stations and a condensate pump station. The whole project is expected to be completed in 2010.
Lake Dianchi is the sixth largest fresh water lake in China and it is also the mother lake of Kunming. Due to the increase of urban waste water, domestic waste, and industrial pollution in recent years, the water quality in the Lake has been seriously downgraded, making the Lake one of the three major Lakes in the country to have received key attention in pollution control (the other two are Lake Taihu and Lake Chaohu).
