Aerial photo taken on Aug. 13, 2019 shows a section of the Hutuo River in Shijiazhuang, north China's Hebei Province. The water quality and ecosystem in the Hutuo River have been improved thanks to the local government's ecological remediation efforts. Authorities have introduced curbs on illegal wastewater emissions, upgraded wastewater processing facilities and invested on pre-emission treatment, with technologies such as in-situ remediation at play. Scenic areas and botanical gardens have also been added to the river banks for better public accessibility. (Xinhua/Yang Shiyao)
