“The Chinese government is in the middle of a five-year 410-billion-renminbi (US$66-billion) programme to deliver safe drinking water to all town and city residents — about 54% of the population — by 2015. The focus is on upgrading 92,300 kilometres of mains pipes and thousands of water-treatment plants to developed-world standards.”
