The regulation project of middle and lowser reaches of Han River belongs to Middle Route Scheme of South-North Water Diversion Project, and the two key projects have already brought the huge benefit after 3 years operation. Yangtze River-Han River Water Diversion Project plays a important role in supplementing the water, combating the drought and a bumper harvest, 67km long water channel is already become the busy water highway. Xinglong Water Control Project has the funtion of both irrigation and shipping, and the accumlated power generation reached 800 million kw.
The largest artifical canal in mondern time, water diversion quantity is equivalent to 80 times of East Lake.
Since the Yangtze River-Han River Water Diversion Project starts operation, it is likely to add a 7 square kilometers new lake for Jianghan Plain. On 23th, Sep, Feng Zhongkai, the director of Hubei Bureau of South-North Water Diversion said that the total water diversion quantity is amounted to 9.649 billion cubic meters after the 3 years operation, the total water transfer quantity is equivalent to 80 times of East Lake, and it is almost the same transfer quantity of the whole Middle Route Scheme of South-North Water Diversion Project.
The Yangtze River water traveling through the 67 km long canal, not only help the local government to resist the drought, but also make it a Gloden Waterway that worthy of its reputation.
Supplement the water, resist the drought and maintain harvest
On 21th, September, Huang Shaofang, the villager from Huangwan Village, Makou Town, Han Chuan City said that the late rice will be reaped in one month, and an acre of land can harvest 1500 jin rice, it is much easier than plant cotton. Longzhouyuan of Libu Town in Jingzhou District is the source of Yangtze River-Han River Water Diversion Project, and the starting point of Yangtze River water flowing to the canal through water gate. Yuan Guoyu, the vice director of Jingzhou Administration Bureau of Yangtze River-Han River Water Diversion Project introudced that the water system start working 3 years ahead to relieve the drought. The drought situation is also very sever this year, about 6 million mu agricultural products are suffer from drought in Hubei, with 73,000 people lack adequate drinking water. Through scientific operation, the man-made canal input the water of 12 times of East Lake totally, make a great contribution in relief the drought of 6.45 million mu (430 thousand hectares) of farmland.
Golden Waterway and Busy Shipping Passage
Liu Kehui, the employee from Qianjiang Tian En Constructin Co said, we have 5 shipping boat go throught the canal each day, and it it much cheaper than go with land transportation. Currently, Jianghan Canal has established a thousand-ton level Golden Water Channel as long as 810 km. It is no need to detour in Wuhan from Han River to Yangtze River anymore and cut the distance about 200 km. Besides that, the water situation is very smooth just like a water highway. Based on the statics data, the accumalated 18,069 ships passing through the canal, with total 6.4228 million ton cargos.
Ecological Gallery Won the Reputation
Many students like to come sketching here, because the water and river is beautiful, Hu Yuan said, who lives in Huangjin Tang in Jingzhou District, he goes to jogging at Mingyue Park nearby the moat river of Jingzhou Ancient City everyday. It is considered into the design of canal that water can be input from Yangtze River to moat river.

Seeing from the air, Jianghan Canal looks like a winding belt connects Jingzhou, Jingmen and Qianjiang, which is become a exceptional scenery view of the city.
The No.1 Dam in Jianghan Plain controls Yangtze River, making irrigation and shipping more convenients.
The major mission of Xinglong Water Control Project is irrigation, shipping and power generation, said by Feng Zhongkai, the director of Hubei Bureau of South-North Water Diversion Project, the water from reservior can supplement the water demand for over 3.2 million mu farmland in the area of Qianjiang, Tianman and Shayang. Besides, the project brings some benefits ecologically in recent 3 years.

The right bank of Xinglong Dam is about 1 million mu farmland belongs to Xinglong irrigation area of Qianjiang city, and the 2 million mu farmland at left bank belongs to Luohan Temple, Tianmen city. Xinglong Water Control Project lift the water level of the dam and stablize it at 36.2 meters, increasing the irrigation area from 2 million mu to 3.2 million mu
Shipping in Han River becomes more convenient and fast.
In past 3 years, the accumlated shipping is 30,519 until Sep,21, with 24.9072 million ton cargo in total. The cargo quantity is doubled than last year at the same period, claimed by Xinglong Administration Bureau, and related department is conducting research of building container ships of Han River.
Power Generation Function and Ecology Benefits
Electricy generation is a great highlight of making use of water resource of dam. The actual output of plant amounted to 830 million kw ended by Sep,21th, is equavilaent to the 7 years power consumption by Wuhan Light Rail trains.Beside, Xinglong Water Control Project add a special channel with 399 meters long and 2 meters width, in order to protect the number of fish and eclogoy diversity. In recent 2 years, Xinglong Administration Bureau put over 36,000 fish fry to reduce the recession of fish resource of Han River. A great number of newly planted trees and plants vibrant the banks of the dam. It is said that the water resource with best quality, the fresh air and abaudant aquatic have been attracted to fly to Xinglong Dam, and choose to settle down here, including some rare and endangered birds such as so called Panda in Water mergus squamatus, black stork and pied avocet.
