The Subeinaoer Lake in Inner Mongolia

Photo | 18 March, 2014

The Subeinaoer Lake is surrounded by many 300-meter-deep wells, extracting such large quantities of water that the lake's water level is regularly less than half meter. The lake has been completely dry during autumn for the past three years. Wushen County, Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China. The deep wells are needed due to the fact that for ten years, the Chinese state-run organisation Shenhua Group, has been exploiting water resources at a shocking scale from the Ordos grasslands to use in its coal-to-liquid project (a process for producing liquid fuel from coal) and illegally dumping toxic industrial waste water. Shenhua's operations have sparked social unrest and caused severe ecological damage including desertification, impacting farmers and herders who are facing reduced water supplies in what was once an abundant farming area.
