In April 2019, China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) received reports from the public that illegal sand mining and river damage by Hengqi Building Materials Co., Ltd. in Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province, posed a serious threat to the safety of water transmission from South-to-North Water Transfer Project to Beijing. The CBCGDF attaches great importance to this and sends specialists to the field survey to confirm that the public's response is true.


On May 22, 2019, to seek judicial relief as soon as possible, eliminate the serious threat of illegal sand mining to the South-to-North Water Transfer Project into Beijing, and protect public interests, the CBCGDF formally filed environmental public interest litigation with Baoding Intermediate People's Court.


On July 29, 2019, the CBCGDF received a notice from the Baoding Intermediate People’s Court, which has formally entered the judicial process. As for the progress of the case, the CBCGDF will also publish it to the public through the social media platforms promptly.
