China Daily | Updated: 2017-11-23 07:42

"Lake chiefs" will be appointed in China to keep an eye on water pollution, based on the successful introduction of "river chiefs" last year. The first meeting of the Leading Group for Deepening Overall Reform of the 19th CPC Central Committee, held on Monday, approved the measure, among others.

The lake chiefs will have responsibilities similar to river chiefs, who are tasked with resource protection, pollution prevention and control, and ecological restoration.

Likewise, their performance will be assessed, and they will be held accountable for environmental damage in bodies of water under their supervision.
