The South-to-North Water Transfer Project is a trans-basin diversion project to transport large quantities of water from the Yangtze River basin to the Yellow River in China. Relocation of 330,000 people along the Central Corridor of the South-to-North Water Transfer Project began in 2010 and will be completed in 2014.
Water management problemsEdit
Water management in China is weak and disorganized. This has resulted in extreme over appropriation in the Yellow River Basin. The diversion project, by bringing in an enormous quantity of additional water, attempts to overcome water administration inadequacies.
