    On March 1, CWEG Chairman Hou Feng and Vice President Fang Yong, on behalf of CWEG, met with HDR’s top management team comprised of HDR’s Water Resources Market Sector General Manager Richard Haimann, Project Manager James Wang, and main leaders of HDR’s Minnesota division in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. HDR is a global industrial, environmental, architectural, transportation, engineering and consulting firm based in the US, with its environmental management and consulting business ranking among the top three in North America. HDR has 200 offices worldwide and employs about 8,500 professionals.

    The two parties had a series of in-depth discussions on topics that interest both of them such as integrated water environment management, sponge city construction (Best Management Practices abbreviated as BMP and Low Impact development abbreviated as LID). CWEG Chairman Hou Feng introduced the PPP-based river basin water environment management projects implemented by CWEG to the HDR team, including the Guiyang Nanming River Water Environment Management Project, the Dali Erhai Lake Water Environment Management Project and the Guang’an “Clean Water Action” Regional Water Environment Management Project, which were highly admired by the HDR team. In turn, the HDR team briefed CWEG representatives about the US’s river basin management system centered on TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load) and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and BMP & LID-based rainwater management and utilization technology system, saying that the US’s practices in PPP-based environmental management lags far behind China. Chairman Hou Feng highly commended the US’s advanced concept and technology in this field, and strongly agreed with HDR’s work method that emphasizes on elaborate project investigation, assessment and planning before the construction and long-term delicacy management after the construction. Then, the two parties signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement on river basin integrated water environment management and rainwater management in good faith, which furthered their partnership.
