  The newly released water pollution prevention and control action plan will put tough controls on polluting industries with emission limits and provide stricter supervision from authorities and the public.

  A series of detailed regulations will need to be subsequently released to make the guidelines operable, an expert suggested.

  Emission of water pollutants will continue to grow, but more slowly, and the tipping point for the overall improvement of water quality has not yet been achieved, said Chen Ming, deputy head of the Water Resources Bureau under the Ministry of Water Resources.

  He said peak water consumption will be reached around 2030 and will be held within 700 billion cubic meters annually.

  The plan lists 10 major polluting industries that will have targeted emission reductions.

  The industries are paper making, coking, nitrogenous fertilizer, nonferrous materials, printing and dyeing, agricultural and sideline products processing, the manufacture of drug substances, leather making, agricultural chemicals and electroplating.

  All the outdated capacity in these industries will be phased out, and projects will be restricted to reduce emissions of water pollutants.

  There will also be efforts to improve water consumption efficiency in industrial production.

  Water consumption per dollar value of industrial added value was at least two times that of developed countries, and the effective utilization of water in irrigation was 0.52, lower than the world average of 0.7, the Ministry of Environmental Protection said.
