Wastewater fees collected in 2011 exceed 20 billion RMB

According to the Ministry of Environmental Protection, total wastewater fees collected (not counting the Tibet Autonomous Region) reached about 20.2 billion RMB, a 13.6% increase from 2010. There are several reasons for the increase in fee collection; central and western regions improved regulation of fee collection, and 12 provinces improved their standards for collecting fees for sulfur dioxide and other chemical pollutants discharged in wastewater.
