Water Crisis – Tuesday 31 January Update

Police officers of Liuzhou, in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, move bags of aluminum chloride, which can neutralize heavy metal pollutants, to ensure safe river water. A shortage of aluminum chloride in the city of Hechi could threaten the fight against the water's pollutant. Huang Xiaobang

The usual text messages sent out this morning showed no change to yesterday’s reported cadmium levels in Liuzhou tap water, which remain at 00060mg/l – well below the maximum safety level of  00060mg/l .

In the meantime, it has been reported that “seven chemical plants executives who worked in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, including Jinchengjiang Hongquan Lithopone Material Co. Ltd. in Hechi city” have been arrested,  No surprise there.

At the same time, authorities in Hechi are running low on supplies of aluminium chloride which is being used to neutralise the pollutants.
