BEIJING — Beijing’s vice mayor Ji Lin said on Friday the Olympic host city has stepped up with water recycling to ensure sufficient supplies during the Games.
“We’re already using recycled water in sanitation,” he said on the sideline of the First Session of the 11th National People’s Congress.
The Olympic Games, opening on Aug. 8, will definitely drive up Beijing’s demand for water, he said. “We’ll divert more tap water from the Miyun Reservoir to meet the growing demand.”
