Cadmium pollution: Cities stay on alert – Fu Jing

From The China Daily :

The levels of cadmium in a small section of the Xiangjiang River in this Central China Province are still above safety levels after a spill last week, a senior provincial official said yesterday.

The levels were “one or two times” higher than the national standard in the Wangcheng section of the river in a suburban county of provincial capital Changsha, Jiang Yimin, provincial environmental head, told China Daily.

Cadmium, a chemical that can cause neurological disorders and cancer, seeped into the Xiangjiang River during a silt-cleaning project on January 4.
