China To Clean Up Polluted Lake

One of China’s largest lakes, Lake Tai in Jiangsu province, has suffered from years of waste dumping and now £7million will be spent in a desperate attempt to control the severe pollution and help improve water quality. 

There was a public panic in June this year when a blue-green algae infestation, covering one third of the lake, led to the suspension of water supplies from the lake. 

The plan announced by the Jiangsu government aims to control the plant build up in the lake in the next five years and resolve water pollution in ten years.
