 Yellow River
The Yellow River, or Huanghe, is the second longest river in China.
In the middle reaches, ending at Zhengzhou in Henan province, the river flows south between the Shaanxi and Shanxi Provinces, draining a basin consisting largely of thick deposits of unmodified aeolian loess which is eroded readily by rainfall and wind and accounts for over 90 per cent of the sediment in the main channel downstream.
In the lower reaches, from Zhengzhou to sea for a distance of 786 km, the river is confined to a levee-lined course as it flows in the northeasterly across the North China plain before emptying into the Gulf of Bohai.

The dikes were built over a period of centuries to control the river and prevent floods, but they have actually had the opposite effect.

A new report [1] assessing the state of China's Yellow River could provide answers to the critical water management problems facing the country's 2nd longest river.
The assessment carried out by researchers from the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) and the Yellow River Conservancy Commission (YRCC), was presented at the International Yellow River Forum in Zhenghzou City from 21-24 Oct 2003.
Given the growing supply and demand imbalance in the basin, it is difficult, if not impossible, to meet water demands from one sector without decreasing supplies to another.

 Huang He   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Chinese rebuilt the dikes in 1946-1947, re-diverting the river to the Bohai.
Two factors contribute to the changes: 1) the river carries a heavy sediment load, leading to clogged channels and frequent river course changes; 2) the river is heavily engineered and water is oversubscribed, resulting in little flow to the coast in recent years (Evans, 2002).
Tides at the river mouth are 1.13 m in range and wave power is extremely low because of the extremely low offshore slope (0.026 degrees) and limited fetch in the Bohai Gulf.

Originating in the Himalayas, the Yellow River traverses the high plateau of Qinchai province and the deserts of Inner Mongolia before emerging in the fertile plains of northern China.

Attempts at controlling the Yellow River were begun as early as the third century B.C. An engineer named Yu came up with the idea of dredging the river to encourage the water to flow in its proper channel.
The dam has effectively stopped the river's annual floods by trapping its waters in a reservoir that is slowly released during the dry season.
The river is also a superhighway for commerce, moving 50 billion dollars worth of goods through America's heartland every year.

Rivers in other parts of the country have run fl and occasionally turned other unnatural colors from an overloading with effluents from paper mills and dye factories.
Though China's central government has prioritized cleaning up its polluted rivers and has pledged vast sums for the purpose — one plan is to flush the Yellow with water diverted from the cleaner Yangtze — enforcement of environmental laws at the local level remains spotty at best.
The Yellow River's turning red may be another warning to Beijing of the perils that lurk in its waterways.
