Defending the Botiao River

Public Action

In April 2006, government offices made plans to build 15 hydropower stations along the Botiao River. The Botiao River is the source of water for Chengdu’s Number 6 Waterworks, and a hydropower station on the banks of the river would threaten this source of drinking water. Because of this, CURA started the “Protect the Botiao River- Chengdu’s Drinking Water Source” operation. Using news and media, as well as holding a forum on the subject, they managed to bring together a wide range of people to participate in protecting the Botiao River, and conducted river surveys in order to compile a report on protecting the Botiao River and sustainable development. Qinghua University School of Public Administration held up this work as a prime example of NGOs working together with the government to reach a decision.
