Biggest sewage pipeline complete

CONSTRUCTION work was completed yesterday on China’s largest sewage pipeline, which is set to give a boost to the city’s ability to transport and process waste.

The 3.7 billion yuan (US$595 million) pipeline was built for the state-owned operator, Shanghai Sewerage Co.

The pipeline, in the Pudong New Area’s Chuansha area, will deal with downtown sewage and also serve the Shanghai Disney Resort currently under construction.

The new pipes, which are 4 meters in diameter, can transport up to 2.2 million cubic meters a day.

Existing pipelines connecting to the Bailonggang Sewage Plant are unable to deal with the rising volume.

Previous pipes could handle 1.72 million cubic meters per day, but the volume can reach 1.9 million cubic meters a day.

The 35-kilometer project, which began four years ago, will benefit about 7.12 million residents in an area of 1,255 square kilometers.
