Historical humanities

Development path

In 1932, after the Japanese aggressor army obtained the “full-fledged land of the Manchurian Railway” in Changchun, it was found that the Fengjun military government at that time controlled the Changchun water source very tightly, making the water source of the “full iron affiliated area” always tense. After the establishment of the Puppet Manchuria, the Puppet State Construction Bureau immediately investigated the water source of Changchun with the assistance of “Manchu” and discovered deep groundwater about 100 meters underground.

Below Xinlicheng is the hilly terrain, and the largest river in the area is the Yitong River. There are no mountains and no reservoirs on both sides of the Yitong River. All the tributaries are suffering from narrowness, and only the small river along the Zihe River does not dry up all the year round. In 1934, the Puppet State Construction Bureau made a comparison of water quality, water volume and cost. Finally, it decided to build a water storage dam at a place called “waist station” 12 kilometers southeast of Changchun to intercept the water along the river.

In May 1934, the water storage project was started and water supply began in January 1936. The water supply capacity of this reservoir is 40,000 cubic meters per day, which exceeds the water purification capacity of the Nanling Water Purification Plant by 20,000 cubic meters. The reservoir with a surface area of 4.6 square kilometers was later named “Jingyuetan”.

However, due to the small flow of the river along the Xiaohe River, the water supply of the pseudo-national waters was anxious after five years, and only the Huanglong Park Reservoir (three river runoffs in the upper reaches of the Xihegou tributary of the Yitong River and the Nanhu Lake in Changchun) were used. In the last two years, the Yitong River water intercepted by the Nanban Water Plant Xiaobanqiao sluice was used as the main water supply source. In 1958, with the completion of the Xinlicheng Reservoir, the Yitong River, which was regulated by the reservoir, began to supply water to the Nanling Water Plant, and the Jingyuetan was replaced by the alternate water source of Changchun City.
