In late autumn, the meandering Longxi River flows slowly on the vast and open Liangping Dam. The continuous small wetlands are like a beautiful jade belt, leaning against the people along the coast, telling the story of the leisure and tranquility of being next to the water. .
Water is the most vivid rhyme of Liangping, the “International Wetland City”, and it is also the object of unremitting protection by Liangping people. In recent years, Liangping District has promoted “wide-area water control and wetland moistening”, explored the protection and utilization of micro-wetlands, created a continuous micro-wetland chain and micro-wetland communities, planted a rich ecological background, reshaped the urban characteristics, and enhanced the appearance of the countryside. , adding confidence and confidence to the city.

The Longxi River, which originates from the foothills of Mingyue Mountain, is a first-class tributary on the north bank of the Yangtze River. It flows into the Yangtze River through Liangping, Dianjiang and Changshou. It is the “Mother River” in the minds of Liangping people.
However, due to the direct discharge of industrial wastewater and domestic sewage, Longxi River once became a “black and smelly river” that everyone disliked. Now, after coordinated management of the entire basin, the Longxi River once again has clear water and green banks.

Taking advantage of the good natural ecology and agricultural foundation along the Longxi River, the district has deployed rural tourism, modern agriculture and other industries according to local conditions to promote ecological industrialization and industrial ecology.
Zhushan Town at the foothills of Mingyue Mountain is located in the upper reaches of Qijian River. After achieving clear water and green shores, Zhushan Town built a small rural wetland, implanting ecological and green genes into the development of the town, and also injecting green momentum into emerging industries such as eco-tourism, organic industry, and homestay health care. In this wetland paradise, more than 100 B&Bs and bamboo houses have been built.
