Chongqing’s Xiushan County carried out environmental treatment with great effort and took measures on energy-saving, consumption-lowering and emission-cutting.

In 2011, the county shut down 138 high-pollution enterprises like manganese mines and manganese powder processing plants etc, and invested 553 million yuan in the treatment.

The water quality in Xiushan County has been up to the standard of environment protection by now.
