BEIJING, Jan.5-- Water diversion from northern Guangdong's Beijiang River to its western Xijiang River is expected to start in mid-January to control the severe salt tide, an official with the local water authority said yesterday.
The water authority in Zhuhai is introducing fresh water from the upper reaches of Xijiang River to dilute the salt content before the Beijiang diversion scheme begins.
Residents in Zhuhai and Macao, which draw most of its water from the Xijiang River, are expected to use drinking water with salt content to be levelled beneath 800 milligrams per litre within the upcoming days thanks to the diversions, according to Chen.

The lower Xijiang river waterway suffers from the influence of irregular mixed semidiurnal tide from the coastal region near the Pearl River Estuary.
In the lower Xijiang river waterway, there are more silting sections than scouring sections, and scouring takes place in the narrow sections or the sections with great flow, but the overall trend is that silting dominates.
The monitoring results of sediments from the lower Xijiang river waterway and Liansharong waterway show that heavy metal contents in sediment were 1-2 orders of magnitude lower than the maximum permissible levels of pollutants in agricultural contaminated soils, and thus the sediment was suitable for agricultural utilization.

 Forestation proposed to curb salt tide in the south
The Xijiang River, a tributary of the Pearl River running through the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Yunnan and Guizhou provinces in Southwest China and Guangdong Province in South China, is most severely hit by salt tides.
The ever-worsening ecological system along the upper reaches of the Xijiang River has resulted in insufficient water flowing into the river's lower reaches during the salt tide period, Chen said.
Areas along the river's upper reaches were found to have less coverage of forest, which has worsened soil erosion, according to an investigation conducted by Chen last year.
