 Xi Jinping wrote back to the villagers who built and protected Miyun reservoir.


Make new contributions to building a beautiful Beijing

In reply, Xi Jinping said that 60 years ago, you responded to the call of the Central Committee of the party and actively participated in the construction of the Miyun Reservoir conference. Over the past 60 years, in order to protect the reservoir, close factories and mines, and have made important contributions to the improvement of the ecological environment in the capital. Im very happy to learn that you have played a good role in the development of mountains and rivers.

Xi Jinping pointed out that protecting the ecological environment is of great benefit in the contemporary era. More than 10000 square kilometers of Beijing is an important ecological protection area. I have been thinking about Miyun reservoir. Miyun reservoir was built for flood control and waterlogging prevention. Now, as an important surface drinking water source and strategic water resources reserve base in Beijing, Miyun reservoir has become an invaluable treasure. I hope you will continue to work hard and make good achievements. You will continue to protect Miyun Reservoir and make new contributions to the construction of beautiful Beijing.

Xi Jinping stressed that party committees and governments at all levels should thoroughly implement the idea of ecological civilization, take ecological civilization construction as a strategic task, adhere to ecological priority, green development, strengthen the construction of ecological conservation areas, improve the mechanism of ecological compensation, and jointly protect the motherlands beautiful scenery.

In 1958, in order to eliminate the Chaobai River and solve the water shortage in Beijing and Tianjin, 200000 construction troops of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei fought at the foot of Yanshan Mountain and built Miyun reservoir, realizing the goal of flood detention in one year and completion in two years. After its completion in 1960, Miyun Reservoir played a role in flood detention and water storage, irrigation of farmland, urban water supply, power generation and other functions. In 1985, Miyun reservoir was mainly used to provide domestic water for the capital. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Beijing and Miyun District have adhered to the development concept of green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains, constantly innovated and improved water conservation mechanism measures, and implemented comprehensive three-dimensional control and protection, thus ensuring the safety of water sources in the capital.
