FUZHOU -- A water pipeline connecting Chinese mainland coastal province of Fujian to Kinmen went into operation on Sunday, delivering water from Fujian's Jinjiang River to alleviate water shortages in Kinmen.

The source of the water-diversion project is Longhu Lake in Jinjiang City, the second largest lake in Fujian.

The 28-km pipeline will provide 34,000 cubic meters of water daily to Kinmen, a small island attached to Taiwan but very near the mainland.

The investment totals 388 million yuan (about 57 million US dollars) and the water price has been set at 9.86 new Taiwan dollars (around 0.33 US dollars) per cubic meter.
