China will impose quota restrictions on water use in three service sectors, including hotels and hotels.
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, 13 Nov (Reporter Hu Lu) the reporter learned from the Ministry of Water Resources on the 13th that the Ministry of Water Resources recently issued three service water quotas for hotels, schools, and organs, and for the first time strictly restricted water use in the service industry nationwide. Experts predict that after the strict implementation of the three service water quotas, the water efficiency will be increased by 10% to 20%.
A relevant person in charge of the Ministry of Water Resources said: there are a large number of hotels, schools, and institutions in China, and water users and water consumption scale are concentrated, and they are major users of water use in the service industry. In order to strictly manage water conservation in hotels, schools and government departments, the Ministry of Water Resources has taken into account the differences in the endowment conditions of regional water resources and the characteristics of water use in different industries. Organized and formulated the "Service Water quota: hotels", "Service Water quota: schools" and "Service Water quota: government".
The three water quotas released this time are divided into two levels: advanced value and general value. The advanced value is mainly used in the water resources demonstration, water intake permit examination and approval and water-saving evaluation of the new reconstruction and expansion projects, reflecting the domestic advanced level; the general value is used in the daily water use management and water-saving assessment of existing projects. Taking the water quota of the hotel as an example, the water quota of the hotel refers to the maximum limit of the average water consumption of the bed calculated by the number of beds rented in the hotel under different water saving conditions in a certain period of time. According to the north and south regions and different star grades, the water quota is divided into 8 categories, and 16 specific index values are put forward in terms of advanced value and general value respectively.
"the three service water quotas strengthen the differential management of water use and are further divided into different categories on the basis of distinguishing the southern and northern regions, highlighting the refinement of water use and process management." The responsible person said: this is of great significance in perfecting China's water quota standard system, guiding and standardizing the use and management of water quotas in hotels, schools, and institutions, promoting the progress of water-saving technology, and improving the efficiency of water use.
