China official denies dam an ‘eco-disaster’

map1.jpgCHINA WATCH A Chinese official stepped up to deny any environmental disasters caused by the Three Gorges gigantic dam project, as Greenbang reported one week ago.

Wang Hongju, mayor of Chongqing Municipality said, “The Three Gorges project has not deteriorated the environment in Chongqing.” cited by Chinadaily.

Chongqing Municipality and neighboring Sichuan Province, where the Yangtze River runs through, have suffered extreme weather events, a scorching drought last year and devastating flash floods this summer.

Since the party congress is around the corner, it is understandable  officials will deny negative news…

“The Three Gorges project has not deteriorated environment in Chongqing, a sprawling metropolis next to the project, Mayor Wang Hongju said Monday.

Water in the Chongqing section of the Yangtze River is clean and drinkable, “and the water quality is the best in Chinese cities at current,” Wang, who is also a delegate to the ongoing 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), said on the sidelines of the congress.”
