DUBLIN, Ireland, July 29, 2009 -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Research Report of Chinese Urban Water Supply Industry, 2009" report to their offering.

From 2003 to 2006, China added 148,345 kilometers of urban draining pipelines and the disposal capacity of the urban sewage was 48.17 million tons/day. In 2006, the urban water supply volumes reached 54.1 billion tons, up by 15.9% compared with 2002; the popularizing rate of the water consumption reached 86.7%, up by 8.8 percentage points compared with 2002; the lengths of the urban gas supply pipelines were 189,000 kilometers, up by 65.8% compared with 2002; the popularizing rate of the gas consumption reached 79.1%, up by 11.9 percentage points over 2002.

For a long time, the price of the water was lower than the costs of the water resources. From the long term, it is inevitable to increase the price of the water. However, China is in the successive industrialization and urbanization phase. It is impossible to increase the price of the running water sharply.

At present, the price of the water in China is low and the formation mechanism is far from perfect; the water supply enterprises all face losses; the update of the equipments is aground; the low sewage disposal rate leads to the pollution aggravation. To increase the price of the water supply is not only the need to construct the water saving country, but also the need to guarantee the investments and achieve the sustainable development.

The major problems in Chinese urban water supply industry:

• the systems are backward.
• the water supply infrastructure is insufficient and the water supply capacity needs improving.
• the price formation of the water is unreasonable.
• the water sources are heavily polluted.
• the water disposal technologies are backward.
