China’s Eastern City to Resume Water Supply After Smell Concern

Don't Miss Out —

May 9 (Bloomberg) -- The Chinese city of Jingjiang will turn the water back on for 665,000 people today after an abnormal smell was detected in the morning from supplies taken from the Yangtze River. An alternative source will be used.

Supplies in the city northwest of Shanghai will resume before 5 p.m. local time, according to a statement on the local government microblog, which didn’t give a reason for the smell.

The water supply for 2.4 million residents of the northern city of Lanzhou last month was found to be contaminated after an oil pipeline leak with benzene, a carcinogenic compound used to manufacture plastic.
