Poison sewage pits in north China cause widespread water pollution
Poison sewage pits in north China cause widespread water pollution.
Sewage pits are known to pollute groundwater, making it undrinkable.
CGTN’s Ning Hong reports.
Poisoned dark water is left to dry in the open air.
Ponds like these stretch a long distance and cover a vast area.
Locals said such ponds have been here for decades.
One resident said these ponds are the result of chemical plants that used to be located in the area.
And even though they’re gone now, the pollution remains.
Just a kilometer away is a small town called Nanfu.
There is no other source of water to be had, and most villagers have no choice but to continue drinking polluted water.
