There is no way Chongqing can clean the river, and for goodness' sake, they should not even try to do that.

«ChongQing | Yuzhong» на Яндекс.Фотках

is located on the Yuzhong peninsula at the confluence of two rivers: Jialing and Yangtze:



here you can clearly see also the major differences between two rivers - brown, and quite intensely so waters of Yangtze:


«Chongqing | Nan'an side of Yangtze» на Яндекс.Фотках

(it caries great amount of natural silt) and blue-green and quite clear waters of Jialing River:


«Chongqing | Jialing river bank» на Яндекс.Фотках

Meeting of two results of colorful swirls:


«ChongQing | Yuzhong - JiangBei cable car» на Яндекс.Фотках


«ChongQing | Confluence of Yangtze (brown) and Jialing (green) rivers at the tip of Yuzhong» на Яндекс.Фотках


«Chongqing | Yangtze & Jialin Jian confluece at Yuzhong» на Яндекс.Фотках


«Chongqing | Yangtze & Jialing Jiang confluence at Yuzhong» на Яндекс.Фотках


«Chongqing | Yangtze & Jialing Jiang confluence at Yuzhong» на Яндекс.Фотках


These could also be seen on latest satellite photos. Older ones had beet so heavily processed that the effect was all but eradicated. I guess people doing processing simply weren't aware of this natural phenomenon and deemed it some error in capture.

That being said, Chongqing like many other major Chinese cities has will have more then one CBD. Right now there is already clearly visible second one in the southern part of the city (2) across Yangtze


«Chongqing | Nan'an CBD» на Яндекс.Фотках

, as well as plans for new one to the north of central one at Jiangbei (literally north of the river (Jialing in this case) (3)

Yuzhong is also perhaps most densely built up area in any major Chinese city apart from Hong Kong; or perhaps even more so:


«ChongQing | Yuzhong Density» на Яндекс.Фотках


«ChongQing | Yuzhong» на Яндекс.Фотках


«ChongQing | Yuzhong» на Яндекс.Фотках
