From 2011, the residents of Dawangfang Village, Zhewang Town, began to be moved out of the area. However, over 100 villagers have yet to sign a compensation agreement, and as a result have still not moved away from the polluted area. In October 2014, one resident of Dawangfang Village, Chen Zhanlu, was diagnosed with liver cancer. Since then he has spent more than two months in hospital seeking treatment for the illness. He is now at home, taking medicine and recuperating. But he still does not know if, within his lifetime, he and his family will be able to move away from the seriously polluted village.
