Did you know that three of most successful reservoirs in Anhui Province have been renamed, one to Anqing and other to Luan?
Anhui Province has a prosperous economy, vast land and abundant resources. Combining six provinces including Jiangsu, Jiangxi and Hubei, there are more than 100 cities, counties and districts throughout province. Because of Anhui's special geographical location and excellent environmental conditions, the economy here is rapidly developing, and industry, agriculture and services are steadily developing. In addition, Yellow River and Yangtze River flow through this place, which can be described as a central city with right time, place and people. The culture of rivers and lakes in Anhui Province is endless and can be traced back to before our era.
In ancient times, this place was called Wang Kingdom,It is a place with strong national power and rich talents. Today, there are about 200 rivers and more than 100 reservoirs in Anhui Province. Among them, three reservoirs are very famous, rich in resources and valuable. Come and learn with me.
One. Longheku Reservoir
Regarding Longhekou Reservoir, it should be mentioned that its upper dam project was once recognized by United Nations as a rare water feature. The peculiarity of this dam is that material from which it is made is not sand in traditional sense, but clay. Located between two mountains, it connects three cities. Even better in face of decades of technology.
In addition, Longhe Estuary's water source is even more unique, and quality of fresh water here is one of best in country. In addition to irrigation, it can also be used for drinking by surrounding residents. The area of the nearby irrigation zone is balanced, coverage is huge, and water current is so turbulent that flow rate exceeds 50 cubic meters per second.
According to people's opinion, there is a fresh and natural tourist attraction nearby.This is one of more than ten level 5a scenic spots in Anhui Province. In early years, Longhaekou Reservoir adjoined Wanfohu City, located on one side of reservoir, layer upon layer hidden in dense greenery of trees.
The locals make their living by fishing and hunting. For hundreds of years, reservoirs have been built here, which are of great commercial value and benefit people. There is a small pavilion in center of lake, in summer you can cross big emerald lake by boat, stop on a small island, climb a small tower and admire world.
two. Flower Pavilion Reservoir
Hualianting Reservoir is connected to Yangtze River, and its tributaries belong to Wanhe River region. In early years, it was mainly used for irrigating agricultural land, raising livestock, supplying water and generating electricity. Unlike other reservoirs, this reservoir was created artificially to raise groundwater to surface.
Combined with successive years of rainfall, water accumulated on mountain flows down and drains into reservoir, forming world. Cities on both sides of reservoir are connected by dams and are known to have means of transportation such as boats and rowboats.
The water system of Hualianting Reservoir is divided into several parts, including Anle River, Yang River, Luoxi River, and so on. Therefore, water quality is good, and there are many fish and shrimps. Fishermen in area raise fish, and fish at bottom of lake are bred and caught. Thanks to reservoir, economic benefit has increased significantly.
In 1980s, tourist attractions were built around reservoir, resting on long and meandering lake basin. It is built from Hui style buildings infused with Suzhou style. In addition, several small islands in lake are like forests, with dense vegetation, which gives it an ecological and natural atmosphere.
Later, with development of innovation and technology, Hualianting Reservoir Scenic Area also developed into a resort and entertainment area and a retirement community. Many people come here to travel and observe, bring their families and enjoy rare natural scenery.
Today, site is also rated a 4A scenic spot. As you climb up here, fresh and natural beauty will make you feel relaxed and happy.
Three. Chengkong Reservoir
Taiping Lake, located in city of Huangshan, is one of first places among many water bodies and has long been used and highly valued. Since its completion in last century, it has attracted many visitors. From site selection and exploration, this is a huge undertaking. Each estuary flows differently and water capacity is very different.
In addition, amount of sand in soil surrounding reservoir will affect stability, leading to landslides and subsidence of dam structure, which is not conducive to further use. In subsequent development, Chenkun reservoir gradually grew, moving from an industrial direction to a fishery, which not only solved environmental problem of reservoir, but also provided employment opportunities for nearby people.
Although scenery of Chenkun Reservoir is not outstanding and surrounding environmental value is less, industrial energy is most important. In 1950s, reservoir began to form, but for various reasons it was not completed.
It was finally completed in 1980s, fully forming a large reservoir. The reservoir dam has several outlets that look like a waterfall from a distance. The potential energy of these flowing waters will be converted into electrical energy, and hydroelectric power generation will be used to limit.
Due to geographic location and environment, water accumulated over many years can turn into a flood during rainy season, which will destroy surrounding buildings and agricultural land and change its shape.
Therefore, it is urgent to build a reservoir dam. The value of Chenkun reservoir lies not in moment of day, but in future.
Renaming these bodies of water makes their value visible and enhances their commercial value. In future, combination of urban construction and reservoir expansion will change traditional pattern, and natural scenery such as water, mountains, and trees will stimulate technology and industry, value, create an ideal community, and increase happiness of residents.
