New progress has been made in the highly concerned incident of Harbin ten thousand households drinking water like ink.
On January 12, residents of Kaili Garden District, Wanggang Town Banner, Harbin, provided a community notice to Peng Mei News: By the demonstration of relevant departments organized by the municipal government, residential areas using deep well water in Wanggang Town will be incorporated into the water supply network of Harbin City in June 2019... The deposit is the agricultural machinery community of Wanggang Town, which belongs to the district, and has the stamp of Wanggang Street.
Wang Gang Town is located in the urban-rural fringe of the southwest of Harbin. It covers many districts such as Hongxing Hyatt, supply and marketing complex, Jingucheng and Jinhaicheng around Qikailiyuan District, which used well water as a source of drinking water before.
The person in charge of the airport school community affiliated to Hongxing Hyatt District confirmed the above notification to Peng Mei News. Their community will post the notification to the districts next Monday (January 14).
According to Pengmei News on Jan. 10, before autumn 2018, residents of the supply and Marketing Cooperative complex came back with water after each water cut in their homes, and the water from the tap was black as ink. At the end of November last year, after media reports, the local government sent purified water to the residents of the supply and Marketing Cooperative complex and connected the water pipes of the community to the nearby Qikeliyuan district, which also uses well water.
However, residents reported that there was still visible black slag in the tap water after the conversion. Scale and white greasy floating matter are common in residential water use in surrounding areas.
Although the local residents have reported to the relevant departments many times, the improvement of water quality is progressing slowly. Harbin Water Supply Group, which is responsible for municipal water supply, said that the area is not currently under the planning of municipal pipeline network laying. But many residents have proposed that, in the same jurisdiction of Wanggang Town, Junhe Town District of Hasi is now connected to the municipal water supply network, and clean piped water will soon be used.
Heilongjiang Yinghe Investment Group is responsible for investing in Junhecheng District of Hashi. A person familiar with the company told Pengmei News that the nature of Junhecheng District of Hashi is different. It is a cooperative project with Northeast Forestry University. It has the approval of the government and is a key project of the government. As for the funds for pipeline laying, the staff member said, It is the government that takes the money.
Previously, many residents of Wanggang Town set up Wechat Group to solve the drinking water problem, hoping to connect to the government pipeline network as soon as possible through safeguarding their rights and abilities, but things had not progressed at one time.
The aforementioned announcement means that the residents of Wanggang Town will bid farewell to the well water and receive water from the government pipeline. After learning the news, residents in the Wechat group have expressed unbelievable, happy want to cry and it is not easy to walk all the way.
Official tests of drinking water, such as ink, from 10,000 households in Harbin showed that they were qualified.
Before the summer of 2018, the residents of the Supply and Marketing Co-op Complex Building in Wanggang Town, Harbin, were often distressed by water use. Every time we stop water at home, we turn on the tap and see black ink-like water. By the end of November last year, after the media reported the incident, the local government sent purified water to the residents of the supply and marketing complex and connected the water pipes of the community to the Qikailiyuan community next to it. But residents think its just a temporary measure, and the water problem is still unresolved - there is black slag visible to the naked eye in the water of Qikaili Garden.
