"As the beneficiaries of the project, we are also the protectors of the project. Through this open day activity, we have come into closer contact with the project and have learned about the operation of the project scheduling, water dispatch and the water quality guarantee system. Having understood the safety and reliability of the project, we will continue to support the construction and operation management of the South-to-North Water Diversion Project as always, and introduce the projects to our friends and make contributions to the smooth operation of the project," the representatives said.

A person in charge of the Tianjin sub-bureau said that this open day activity is aimed at better implementing the development concept of "opening up and sharing," so that the masses can have a deeper understanding that diverting water from south to north is not easy, and more importantly, people can be confident with the meticulous management of the water diversion project. After four years of stable operation, the amount of diverted water has exceeded 3.2 billion cubic meters, and greatly improved the ecology and environment of Tianjin and the areas along the route.
