    The water there is definitely becoming more scarce and more polluted and the industries keep expanding and expelling pollutants. Water pollution there causes an estimated 41.73 billion yuan of damage to human life per year, which is the equivalent of $3.9 billion. As a result, they are turning to ground water, but it turns out about half of China’s groundwater is polluted. Here is a chart showing the pollution grade of some of China’s water. Grades 4 and 5 are considered unsuitable for humans:

    In February 2010, a survey found that China’s estimated 2007 water pollution levels were twice as high as originally thought.  The government is trying to tackle the growing problem of acid rain, wastewater, and other contaminants before the country’s water crisis grows.  With such a large population, it is crucial that China have clean water sources.  The tap water is not potable, and must be boiled before consumption.  Most hotels have special faucets that provide drinkable water.
