As a waste water treatment project for key inspection in Jiangsu Province and a major project in Lianyungang City, Xugou Project Phase I has been operating smoothly and in compliance with relevant discharge standards in the past few years. Securing Xugou Project Phase II demonstrates the recognition and support to Everbright Water from the local government authorities and the public. The project is also expected to ease the increasing demand for the local waste water treatment, and facilitate Lianyungang City in improving its urban waste water collection and treatment system. This will effectively protect and improve the quality of the local water environment. Everbright Water will strive to develop Xugou Project Phase II into a benchmark project, and create synergies with the other water projects of the Company located in Lianyungang and its surrounding areas. This will enable the Company to provide better and more efficient water treatment services and solidify the Company’s market position in these regions.
