Daily Overview
Sand dredging boats gather on Poyang Lake in China’s Jiangxi Province, one of the world’s busiest dredging sites. On an average day here, hundreds of vessels can collect upwards of 10,000 tonnes of sand per hour, much of which is used in land reclamation projects. Poyang is China’s largest lake, but it is losing water fast — its outflow channels have been carved deeper and wider by dredging. 
This Overview is featured in our newest story ‘Dredging Up Problems,’ which takes a look at land reclamation and it’s impact on our environment. Click here to read the full story.
