Interbasin Water Transfer in China
Preview not available

Abstract

The necessity for and the feasibility of diverting water from the Chang Jiang to northern China for agricultural, industrial, and urban uses are currently under study in China. Two possible routes have been identified that would affect four river basins. Several measures are suggested to alleviate the current water shortage in northern China. Alternative sources of water, quantity of available water, potential environmental effects, and the costs and benefits of water transfer should be fully understood before the water-transfer scheme is implemented.
