Reuters: China presses Three Gorges project to heed rules

From Reuters AlertNet:

China’s environmental watchdog, flexing its limited muscles to try to clean up industry, may take the operators of the , the world’s largest hydroelectric project, to court, state media said on Tuesday.

The State Environmental Protection Administration (SEPA) has told the state-owned Yangtze River Three Gorges Project Development Corp. it must heed an order to halt construction at three new projects or face fines and legal penalties.

The warning, posted on SEPA’s Web site,, was sent after initial administration calls for work at the sites to stop were ignored, the Beijing News said.
