Sanya sewer separation project expected to be completed at end of this year
With a total investment of 576 million yuan, the sewer separation project around Sanya River and Sanya Bay is expected to be finished at the end of this year.
For a long time, sewage and rainwater in the same pipes have been found directly discharged into major bodies of water in the city causing unpleasant smells.
The purpose of this project is to reduce pollution levels in Sanya River and nearby sea area by substantially decreasing the volume of combined sewer overflows.
This sewer separation project will replace the existing single combined system with two separate systems – one for sewage and one for rainwater.
