Kinmen Island, Taiwan, has started importing water from Fujian province in mainland China. Ceremonies marking the development were conducted both in Kinmen and Fujian.

Longhu Lake, Jinjiang, Fujian, the second largest in the province, will provide water for the project via a 28km undersea pipeline, delivering 34,000 cubic meters per day to Kinmen.
