People were gettinging water via the water fountain at Longfor Yuanzhu Paradise Walk, Jiangbei District.
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- 60-year-old Li Huarong arrived early in Jiangbeizui Central Park as usual. She has been running here for more than four years.
However, since last month, the kettle that she took with for the morning running has become smaller and empty.
"If you are thirsty, you can drink warm water in the park." Li Huarong said. There is no need to worry about thirst during morning running since Jiangbeizui Central Park has a public water fountain.
Public water fountains not only improves the quality of the city, but also warms the people.
Comfortable: Drink water via water fountain when you go shopping at Guanyinqiao.
So far, 12 publicwater fountains were set up in Jiangbei District including Beicheng Paradise Walk, IMIX Park and Jialing Park. The person in charge of the urban administration bureau of Jiangbei District said that 40 public water fountains have been completed ahead of schedule at the end of August. More public water fountains will be added in the Guanyinqiao business District, Jiangbeizui and other crowded public areas of Jiangbei District.
In the past Mid-Autumn Festival holiday, public water fountain at Panda House of Chongqing Zoo left deep impression on many tourists.
The water fountain is on the theme of panda, which is not only convenient for tourists, but also very lovely. Many children are scrambling to take pictures with it.
Secure: Every drop of water has been filtered for multiple times.
Water quality safety is the greatest concern for many people when they use water fountain. In order to reassure the public, the urban administration bureau has made a lot of efforts for that.
Taking the water fountain in Jiulongpo District as an example, it adopts selective low-pressure nanofiltration membrane technology, which not only removes harmful substances in water such as chlorine, heavy metals, but also preserves trace elements and minerals including potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium which are beneficial to mankind.
Water dispenser adopts double sterilizations. The equipment in the front is responsible for ozone disinfection while the end is for ultraviolet disinfection. Therefore, it can ensure that the water is fresh and safe at any time.
The equipment also has the function of remote warning of water quality. Once the water quality exceeds the standard, it can immediately feed back to the background system to notify the maintainers to come to change the filter elements, and avoid the safety accidents caused by the water quality problems.
At the same time, the filter element of the water purifier should be changed regularly according to the manufacturer's instruction, which ensures the quality and safety of drinking water.
Warm: You can choose hot water, warm water or cold water and the water is a little sweet.
Many people who drink water via water fountains in Jiangbei District have such feeling: public drinking water is a little sweet. The person in charge of the Jiangbei District Urban Administration Bureau explains that coconut shell activated carbon is used for purification, which makes the water sweet.
Public direct drinking water can make people feel sweet in the mouth and in the heart as well. The water purifier of the public water fountains in Jiangbei District provides hot, warm and cold water to people. People just need to click on the corresponding button on the water purifier if they want to drink water.
At the same time, in order to prevent children from pressing the "hot water" button, protection is designed on the water purifier. You should press the hot water protection button before pressing the hot water button.
In order to prevent the old and children from being scalded by mistake, the integrated drinking water equipment in Jiulongpo District is set to 60 degrees Celsius.
376 public water fountains will be built in Chonqing’s main urban districts.
According to the plan, by the end of 2018, 376 public water fountains should be built in which there is a dense population and people would like to linger longer.
At present, there are 290 water fountains in Chonqing main urban districts. (Translated by Ding Yingying, Fathom Language Limited)
