Project Description

According to bank documents, "the project will contribute to mitigation of water pollution in rivers and lakes in the Peoples Republic of China, which will be accomplished through expanded wastewater management services under integrated concessions in selected central and western provinces.
China Water Environment Group Limited (CWE) will select subprojects located in urban sections of key rivers and lakes designated as government priority areas for environmental protection.
For each subproject, CWE will develop and operate facilities as public-private partnerships (PPP) governed under concession agreements signed with city or county governments.

The loan would support CWE in designing, constructing, and operating a series of facilities spanning several components, such as
(i) wastewater treatment plants;
(ii) sludge treatment plants;
(iii) sewage conveyance and interception pipelines;
(iv) dredging of rivers and lakes;
(v) other civilworks such as riverbank reinforcements, odor treatment plants, and landscaping; and
(vi) the development of watersheds and wetlands.

It is envisaged that, by 2024, river or lake rehabilitation subprojects will be developed with wastewater treatment capacity of 2.3 million tons per day, sludge treatment capacity of 2,900 tons per day, and 190 kilometers of sewage pipeline networks, among other infrastructure. "
