Xiaolangdi Yields Comprehensive BenefitsThe Xiaolangdi project, a key water control project on the Yellow River attracting world wide attention, has begun to reap comprehensive benefits after joint efforts made by engineers from 51 countries and a workforce of over 10,000.
With it, China's flood control standard on the Yellow River has been increased greatly: Power has come to be produced by underground generating sets, which will effectively relieve the pressure on power demand for electricity supply in the Central Plains area.
Meanwhile, Xiaolangdi Reservoir, already with 2000 million cubic meters of water in storage, has begun to demonstrate its power for flood control and silt deposition this year, not to say outstanding scenery going to be created in the area.
The construction will also bring a fine prospect for sustained tourism development. Since last year there were comprehensive harness construction projects of ecological environments such as "Protect the Mother River" having been launched, these will bring into full play Xiaolangdi's functions in contributing to China's economic development.
On the May Day holidays, a tourism festival was held, large throngs of tourists both from home and abroad have attracted thither.
