The relevant person in charge of the State Environmental Protection Administration pointed out the total amount of sewage discharged from the basin.
Administration according to law, seriousness of safeguarding national environmental information
Recently, Liu Hongzhi, deputy director of the Pollution Control Department of the State Environmental Protection Administration, said in an interview with the reporter that the Huaihe River Water Resources Commission issued the so-called "the first watershed to limit the total amount of pollutant discharge". The Huaihe River Water Resources Commission disregarded the national laws and regulations and violated the "five "The Huaihe River Basin limits the total amount of pollutant discharge, and arbitrarily issued opinions on limiting the total amount of pollutant discharge, disturbing the audio-visual and disturbing the normal operation of the national sewage discharge control work.
Liu Hongzhi pointed out that Article 32 of Chapter IV of the Water Law of the People's Republic of China clearly stipulates that “the water administrative department or the watershed management agency of the people's government at or above the county level shall comply with the water quality requirements of the water function zone and the natural purification capacity of the water body. Approving the water pollution capacity of the waters, and submitting opinions on the total amount of pollutant discharge in the waters to the environmental protection administrative department. The Huaihe River Water Resources Commission should scientifically verify and submit to the environmental protection department a proposal to limit the total amount of pollutant discharge, instead of issuing it by itself.
Liu Hongzhi pointed out that during the "Ninth Five-Year Plan" and "Tenth Five-Year Plan" period, the State Environmental Protection Administration, together with the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Water Resources and other relevant departments, and the Huaihe River Basin water pollution prevention and control plan and the "Ninth Five-Year Plan" jointly formulated and implemented jointly by the four provinces along the Huai River. (hereinafter referred to as the "Ninth Five-Year Plan") and the "10th Five-Year Plan for Water Pollution Prevention and Control in the Huaihe River Basin" (hereinafter referred to as the "10th Five-Year Plan"), all approved by the State Council, which have clear requirements for the total amount of pollutant discharge. The "Ninth Five-Year Plan" requires that the total discharge of chemical oxygen demand in the whole basin be controlled to 360,000 tons by the year 2000. The "10th Five-Year Plan" requires that the total discharge of chemical oxygen demand in the whole basin be controlled to 46.6 by 2005. Ten thousand tons, while requiring a total amount of ammonia nitrogen emissions of 91,000 tons. The Huaihe River Water Conservancy Commission arbitrarily released the control of chemical oxygen demand in the basin at 382,000 tons/year and ammonia nitrogen at 26,600 tons/year, which clearly violated the requirements of the “10th Five-Year Plan” limit that the State Council has already determined, and the water resources with the Ministry of Water Resources.  No. 107 officially submitted to the Office of the "Opinions on the Limitation of Total Emissions from the Huaihe River Basin", suggesting that the total amount of chemical oxygen demand and ammonia nitrogen in the Huaihe River Basin is 460,000 tons/year and 32,800 tons/year, respectively. The opinions are not consistent, causing questions from relevant parties.
Liu Hongzhi said that as a basic system of environmental protection work, total control was established as early as the third National Environmental Protection Conference in 1989. In 1996, the State Council approved the implementation of the “National Major Pollutant Discharge Total Control Plan during the Ninth Five-Year Plan” and the “Huaihe River Basin Water Pollution Prevention Plan and the “Ninth Five-Year Plan”, which clearly stated the total discharge of chemical oxygen demand in the Huaihe River Basin. The target of quantity has established an operational mechanism for the allocation, control and assessment of aggregate indicators. The Huaihe River Water Resources Commission has rushed to issue a total opinion on limiting the total amount of pollutant discharge. How can it be called "the first one"?
Liu Hongzhi pointed out that we have had a lot of profound lessons on data monitoring and environmental information release. In 2000, when a sodium cyanide rollover accident occurred in Danfeng County, Shaanxi Province, and a department first released a serious and untrue environmental information, which had a negative impact on social stability and foreign trade, the relevant departments of the central government were in the discipline of strict reporting on environmental pollution accidents. The Notice of the Notice clearly states that “the information on environmental pollution accidents shall be issued by the State Environmental Protection Administration in a unified manner”. The Notice of the General Office of the State Council on Strengthening the Prevention and Control of Water Pollution in the Huaihe River Basin (Guo Ban Fa  No. 93) clearly stipulates that “water environment information shall be uniformly released by the environmental protection department”. Environmental data information must be uniformly released by the national environmental protection administrative department in accordance with the law. Otherwise, it will interfere with normal environmental protection work, mislead public opinion, infringe on the public's right to know the environment according to law, cause adverse international influence, and even cause social confusion.
