Shen, Y.; Zhang, D., and Zhao, Y., 2020. Progress on rural drainage water for rural revitalization in northwest China. In: Hu, C. and Cai, M. (eds.), Geo-informatics and Oceanography. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 105, pp. 23–27. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.
Drainage water has a great effect on rural living water environment in northwest of China. According to some characters of rural drainage, the solution project on engineering technology and management measures is presented to develop the rural drainage water and living water environment in northwest of China. For normal rural areas, low cost technology of drainage engineering includes using natural ecological treatment systems with low energy consumption and paying attention to the recovery and utilization of waste water resources and low impact development. For watershed of drinking water sources, reasonable rural domestic sewage treatment methods should be implemented for different features of the rural areas. The methodology used in this for rural drainage in northwest China could be applied to other sites around the world that are affected by these extreme conditions.
