WaterResourcesManagement
Chengdu is one of 300 cities in the People’s Republic of China that have water shortage problems. The mainsource of Chengdu’s water supply is the Minjiang River. Water pollution and reduction in forest cover in theupper reaches of the river have decreased the amount of water available, resulting in either reduced outputs(No. 2 and No. 5 waterworks) or closure (No. 3 and No. 4 waterworks) of water treatment plants.
 
TheChengdu Government has issued laws and regulations for the protection and conservation of water suppliesincluding groundwater sources. It began a watershed rehabilitation project in 1998 that cost CNY566 million(US$68.4 million). It is also investing CNY2.7 billion (US$326 million) in the Shahe watershed rehabilitation,which started in November 2001. The city has plans to use treated wastewater effluent for car washing, toiletflushing, irrigation, and small fountains/waterfalls in new development areas.

Policy andRegulation
The Chengdu Municipal Water Supply Administrative Ordinance was enacted in January 2001. It aims tostrengthen the municipal water supply administration, safeguard all kinds of water usage, maintain the rightsand interests of water supply companies and users, and develop the water supply trade. With theintroduction of a market economy in the PRC, all allowances and subsidies were removed from water supplycompanies. The Franchise Management Regulation of Chengdu encourages investment from foreign investorsfor build-operate-transfer (BOT) and transfer-operate-transfer (TOT) projects. The Chengdu Governmentsets the price for water produced by foreign investors, as in the BOT scheme of the CGE-M.

PrivateSectorParticipation
The Chengdu No. 6 Waterworks was constructed and is being operated under a BOT scheme by CGE-M.The company sells water to CMWSC under an agreement that requires CMWSC to purchase 400,000 m
3
of water daily. CGE-M must deliver at least the same amount; otherwise, it is penalized. CMWSC alsoproduces water and has a total capacity of 980,000 m
3
 /day. The total demand is about 1 million m
3
 /day,but because of the agreement, CMWSC is forced to reduce its own production by 40% and buy higherpriced water from CGE-M. This situation was caused by an overestimate of demand based on populationgrowth and the abundance of groundwater, as well as the emergence of many small-scale water providers.
 
FloodManagement
During the 20th century, Chengdu suffered from 15 major flooding disasters. The worst were in 1964 and1981 when storm waters combined with flood flow from the upper reaches of the Minjiang River. Floodmanagement is the responsibility of the Flood Prevention Headquarters of the People’s Government of Chengdu under the Chengdu Water Conservancy Bureau. In 2001, expenditure for flood control works andmanagement was CNY19.64 million (US$2.37 million).
