New China (11)

New China. Hardcover book published by Foreign Languages Press 1953, unpaginated with black and white photographs. All text is in English.

The 1054-metre sluice gate is part of a vast project built in only 75 days in the middle reaches of the Yangtse River.

This project includes the sluice gate, a 336.6-metre regulator and a detention basin capable of containing five and a half billion cubic metres of water

Thousands of millions of cubic metres of flood waters have been harnessed in service of man. They will never again become a menace but will flow peacefully into cotton, rice and wheat fields, helping to produce bumper harvests

Water is now controlled and stored and turned into hundreds of thousands of kilowatts of electricity for factories and farms
