The western urban and rural water supply project of Yinchuan metropolitan area, a major livelihood and ecological environmental protection project in Ningxia, has started water supply recently. Xixia reservoir with 33 million cubic meters of capacity has stored 6 million cubic meters of water. Residents in three districts and two counties of Yinchuan will drink water from the Yellow River.
According to reports, the west line water supply project of Yinchuan metropolitan area, with a total investment of nearly 8 billion yuan, is a strategic public infrastructure project related to the long-term development of Yinchuan metropolitan area. It has the advantages of optimizing the urban spatial layout of the whole region, promoting the integration of industry and city, improving the construction level of new urbanization, and playing the radiation and driving role of Yinchuan capital city, and promoting the economic and social development of Ningxia significance.
According to the reporter's understanding, the existing urban water supply sources in Yinchuan metropolitan area are groundwater. The long-term exploitation of groundwater in Yinchuan and Shizuishan cities has formed an overdraft funnel area. The exploitation of some water sources has reached the critical value of allowable exploitable quantity, and the normal water supply can not be guaranteed during the peak period of water consumption. Moreover, the contradiction between urban planning and construction and water source protection in Yinchuan is increasingly prominent. The west line water supply project in Yinchuan metropolitan area will fundamentally solve these problems and contradictions.
The construction of the project started in April last year. A water intake station was built in Jinshawan on the dam of Qingtongxia reservoir on the Yellow River. Through the reconstruction of Xixia canal and Xixia reservoir and the construction of a new Yellow River water treatment plant, the first phase of the project can supply water to Yinchuan City, and the second phase project can supply water to Shizuishan City and other areas. After the completion of the whole line, more than 2.6 million urban and rural people in Yinchuan, Shizuishan and Qingtongxia cities will be benefited.
Ningxia water conservancy construction center related person in charge said, Yinchuan metropolitan area urban and rural West line water supply project to make the Yellow River water to benefit the people's happiness. After the reconstruction and expansion of the West Main Canal, the concept of "digital water control" of water network is applied to build the irrigation area into an efficient, economical, green and harmonious modern ecological irrigation area. It will also improve the water supply guarantee rate of grape corridor planting base at the eastern foot of Helan Mountain, provide solid water security guarantee for creating a more charming "Purple card" of Ningxia, and create a green landscape corridor in Western Yinchuan by providing ecological water service for lakes and wetlands along the line.
