“As an emerging city in the early stage, the Damuwan New City is more conducive to promote the construction of sponge city than the old cities.” In March this year, the Damuwan New City was listed as the first pilot area of sponge city in Xiangshan county. As present, the new city has built the area of sponge city covering 2.4 square kilometers with a 149-million-yuan investment.
It is reported that in the construction of sponge city, the Damuwan New City has inherent advantages in resources. It links to open sea, has saline and fresh water two major water systems and 27 rivers in the area, possessing the “sponge” ability to absorb and liberate. “Permeable pavement is widely used in roads, squares and parking. And in the aspect of landscape greening, we take various ways, such as sunk greening, plant ecological ditch and ramp waterfront.”, said Wang Li, the leader of the engineering department in this project.
At the same time, a sponge city project reserve system was established in the Damuwan New City, of which the management and implementing was very strict. Construction unit was also leaded to use sponge city ideas in program design and engineering construction. In the second half year, newly commenced projects covering 200 thousand square meters will start, including the west section of Songlan Road and Zhongle River.
