      "A Chinese city of 3.8 million people closed schools and was trucking in drinking water Wednesday after shutting down its water system following a chemical plant explosion that officials said polluted a nearby river with toxic benzene."

      "The disaster highlighted the precarious state of China's water supplies."

      "The country's 1.3 billion people and the factories and farms of its booming economy compete for scarce supplies. The government says all of China's major rivers are dangerously polluted."

      "Due to its vast population, China ranks among countries with the smallest water supplies per person." 11-05
