    Water is the source of life, and the health and safety of drinking water is particularly important. The 15th session of the Standing Committee of the 12th National People's Congress of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region recently deliberated and passed the regulations on the supervision and administration of drinking water sanitation in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region (hereinafter referred to as the regulations), through legislation to ensure that people drink "safe water" and "safe water", trying to tighten the "valve" of drinking water safety from the source. The regulation will come into force on November 1, 2019. People in the industry said that this is another important part of the legislative work of the Standing Committee of the people's Congress of the autonomous region this year, "more importantly, the well-being and sense of gain of the masses have been improved in this little bit".

    In recent years, the Party committee and the government of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region have done a lot of work in improving the drinking water sanitation and safety conditions. However, due to the relative lag or even lack of relevant rules and regulations and legal supervision, there are still hidden dangers in the health and safety of drinking water everywhere. The source of drinking water is high in sulphate and fluoride, the indicators of sulphate in the factory water and peripheral water exceed the standard, the water supply facilities and pipe network are aged and polluted, and the preventive health examination has not been carried out for the newly built, reconstructed and expanded drinking water projects. These problems exist in varying degrees, which make people upset and the competent departments worried. Therefore, a special local regulation was formulated to regulate the production, operation and use of drinking water and strengthen the supervision and management of drinking water health and safety.

    It covers the whole process of people's domestic water sanitation and safety, and makes up for the regulatory gap of current laws and regulations in the whole region, which is of far-reaching significance. Chen Jie, a lawyer at Ningxia Yancheng law firm, said. There are also strict regulations on the water supply mode of the new type of business.

    The water authority or the water administrative authority shall submit the testing data; establish and implement the health self inspection system, conduct the centralized self inspection at least once a quarter and keep the self inspection records... Over the "Regulations", we focus on the new, reconstructed and expanded centralized water supply projects and secondary water supply facilities project preventive health review. In addition, the regulations clearly implement the filing system for new business water supply modes, such as pipeline direct drinking water and on-the-spot drinking water, and regulate relevant production and operation activities. The reporter noted that the construction unit of the secondary water supply facilities and the existing drinking water business unit were also required to configure electronic monitoring equipment. For water supply units that violate this provision, the competent health department and urban water supply department shall order them to make corrections within a time limit according to their duties; if they fail to make corrections within the time limit, they shall be fined between 5000 yuan and 20000 yuan; if the circumstances are serious, they shall be fined between 20000 yuan and 30000 yuan. For the illegal production and operation units of drinking water sold on the spot, the competent department of health shall order them to make corrections within a time limit; if they fail to make corrections within the time limit, they shall be fined not less than 1000 yuan but not more than 5000 yuan; if the circumstances are serious, they shall be fined not less than 5000 yuan but not more than 10000 yuan. In this regard, the relevant person in charge of Ningxia health and Health Commission explained that this is because there are more risks of water and sanitation safety in these two links, so the regulations strengthened supervision. "

    As stipulated in Article 24, "the people's government at or above the county level shall, in accordance with the law, formulate emergency plans for drinking water safety emergencies, build emergency standby water sources, establish emergency rescue organizations, equip with emergency equipment and equipment, organize emergency drills, and improve emergency response capacity." The construction of supervision and monitoring platform is a great help to eliminate the previous supervision blind area. It is required by the regulations to establish a supervision and monitoring system for drinking water sanitation, establish and improve a monitoring network information platform, and organize the competent department of health and other relevant departments to monitor and evaluate the administrative region.
