Xingjiang River is the first level branch of Wujiang River. It is the ‘mother river’ of Anshun. The upper stream has attractive Karst landscape. Here is also the home of Minorities who has special type of building, named Tunpu. However, the river environment are polluted and chanalized. The quality of ecology and flooding safety problem influence the local society and economy which need to be improved urgently.
The goal of this project is to comprehensively enhance the safety level for flood control and river ecology of upstream tributaries of Xingjiang River. At the same time, stimulating the added value of the area is another goal. The plan drops the commonly used traditional single solution off: no building hard dykes only for flood control; no proposing development restriction policies only for ecology recovery; no relying on the water purification factory. Instead, we are going to create a multi-level planning strategy by using eco-friendly method on improving the follow aspects: improving flood carrying capacity of the river; improving flood storage capacity of river and river control areas; enhancing the self-purification capacity of the water bodies. Meanwhile by designing with professional landscape knowledge we can achieve the improvement of environmental quality. The specific strategies also include returning land to the river, building ecol-gully, eco-green land construction etc.
