Excerpt: The decline in water conditions across China is directly related to Chinas population growth, strong economic growth, and uncontrolled urbanization and semiurbanization. The worst decline in water quality occurred over the period 1985?1995 with the boom of unregulated township and village enterprises (TVEs) across Chinas countryside, says Jostein Nygard, coeditor of China: Air, Land, and Water. These small communally owned and operated industries provide minimal wastewater treatment compared with larger city industries. Conditions became so serious that in 1995 the government shut down 70,000 medium and small TVEs along Chinas rivers. The closures had a significant effect in reducing pollutants from TVEs, says Nygard, but pollution levels went up again in 1997 as inputs from other sources, such as homes and agriculture, increased.
