Description

A side effect of rapid industrialization and few regulations, China's rivers are often treated as little more than sewers. But as LinkAsia contributor Mark Dreyer reports, an online campaign to clean up the country's water is gathering steam. 

Due to lax regulations, factories across China have dumped toxic waste and chemicals into local rivers and lakes for years. Villages downstream have seen an explosion in cancer rates in recent years. State-run CCTV News reports on measures that the Chinese government is taking to clean up the country's water supply.
