Water conservationists yesterday protested over a proposed amendment to the Water Pollution Control Act (水污染防治法), which would allow treated household wastewater to be added into groundwater systems.

At a public hearing of an amendment to the act, activists said the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) should prohibit all wastewater from entering groundwater systems and help recycle and process effluent to be reused by industries.
