The central route of the South-to-North Water Diversion Project resumed operation on June 1 after seven months of maintenance. The project will further secure Beijing's urban water supply, especially during the summer peak months.

Since Nov. 1 last year, staff have been carrying out maintenance work on the project's main structure, water turbines, metal structure, electrical equipment, automated machinery, and other related facilities. The work was completed one month ahead of schedule on May 31.

"During the seven months of maintenance, Beijing's urban water supply has mainly been coming from Miyun Reservoir," explained an official from the city's water authority.

Starting today, Beijing's urban water supply will be gradually switched from Miyun Reservoir to the central route of the South-to-North Water Diversion Project. The project will supply the city with water at a rate of 50 cubic meters per second, providing around 4 million cubic meters per day. Next, Beijing's water authority will work to ensure the economical use of water, especially that diverted via the project.
