Students at Gongbin Primary School in Harbin join in the water-storage exercise as the city suspended its water supply at midnight Monday. The city government said fears of water contamination in Songhua River, which supplies the capital of Heilongjiang Province, were behind the four-day water supply cut. The city's environment bureau had forecast that possibly-contaminated water could arrive from the upper reaches of the river in the coming days following a chemical plant blast on November 13.
