Gush Spouts Limp At China Tourist Attraction

JINAN

The water level of Baotu Spring, a famous scenic spot in Jinan, capital of eastern China's Shandong Province, has continued to fall below the warning mark for a week, reaching 27.52 meters on Monday. Baotu Spring is reputed as the finest among the 72 famous springs in Jinan, also known as China's "City of Springs," for its spectacle of three springs gushing into the sky. However, due to Jinan's growing demand for water for summer planting and urban residents during the hot and dry weather, Baotu Spring now faces a water crisis, local authorities said.
