Cleaning up the creek

A boy watches an excavator dredging up silt from Suzhou Creek in downtown Shanghai yesterday. The six-month program to clean up the silt in the waterway is wrapping up along 16.4 kilometers of the river's downtown section. About 8,000 cubic meters of silt has been dug up and moved away every day since January when the last phase of the clean-up program was launched. Efforts to clean up the heavily polluted creek began in 1998.
