China has recently inaugurated a new giant artificial waterfall of the country, up to 396 meters wide, designed to provide water in emergency situations.

Chinese authorities have spent up to three years building a "massive" artificial waterfall in Kunming City, the capital of Yunnan province. The total cost of the project amounted to 1.1 billion yuan, or $ 168.7 million.

The aforementioned artificial waterfall project also includes upgrading existing pipelines and building a large reservoir.

Completed last year, the building immediately attracted the attention of the public since its inception. It is also hailed as a new accent for southwest China.

Artificial waterfalls are capable of diverting about 300,000 cubic meters of water from the Niulan River to the local Tri Tri Lake. This work is designed to be prepared to cope with the potential for water shortages, especially in drought periods, in a country where up to 60% of groundwater is contaminated.

Water quality is a big problem for China. Many people in these cities' cities are having to boil drinking water or buy bottled water to ensure water safety.
