The General Office of the Jiangsu Provincial Government has released an action plan to make clean at least 100 waterbodies with “black odorous water,” or sewage and garbage discharge issues, within two years, Jiangsu media reported on Dec. 27.

By the end of November, the province had completed renovation of 66 such waterbodies, with pollution in the rest to be controlled in 2019.

The province aims to eradicate all bodies of black odorous water in cities divided into districts and inhabited areas in counties in the Taihu Lake basin.

By the end of 2020, Jiangsu plans to make sewage sludge solutions available in all its cities and counties.
