Over Half Chinas Urban Water Polluted, The Other Half is Lead

China is hell bent on fouling up as much of the planet as they can. But don’t worry, the chicom bastards have shipped their sin off to the land of Liberty so the locals will be left toting the feces covered stick.
Here is a report saying that 57 percent of chinas urban groundwater is polluted. And remember for china that’s a bold statement. For when their air quality is dangerous by human levels, they call it slightly polluted. If they say their water is bad, then it’s fked.

Excerpt

Underground water in 57% of monitoring sites across Chinese cities have been found to be polluted or extremely polluted, reports the state-run Economic Information Daily, citing figures from the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

The ministry statistics also show that 298 million rural residents do not have access to safe drinking water.

In the first half of last year, of the seven main water systems in China, only the Yangtze and Pearl rivers had good water quality, and the Haihe river in north China was heavily polluted, with the others all moderately polluted, according to the ministry.
