Hundreds of millions of people living in and around China’s main industrial zones lack a safe supply of adequate drinking water. That’s because of continued pollution of rivers and streams by heavy industry and domestic sewage. Authorities in northern China say they’re introducing new water recycling technology to tackle the problem. CCTV’s Han Peng is reporting from Tang Shan, He Bei Province, China.
