Hunan Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection and Hunan Provincial Department of Supervision conducted a thorough inspection on law enforcement across the province last year, supervising the implementation of energy conservation, emission reduction and environmental protection, strengthening supervision over the comprehensive wastewater treatment in Xiangjiang River basin and thus protecting drinking water sources of the mother river.

According to the requirements and deployments made by Hunan Provincial People's Government in comprehensive wastewater treatment in Xiangjiang River basin, the discipline inspection and supervision organs of Hunan Province together with Hunan Provincial Department of Environmental Protection have carried out the inspection in 8 cities such as Yongzhou, Hengyang and Zhuzhou. Based on the results, the cities with major problems including lagged development, deficient facilities and non-standard operation have been punished and supervised. According to the statistics, relevant departments have publicized 28 projects calling for rectification, banned and closed 21 polluting enterprises which are within the protection zone of first and second-grade drinking water sources, and punished 42 illicit enterprises through suspending their production and charging administrative sanction.
