Abstract

This article analyses the spatial correlations between urbanization and river water pollution in the heavily polluted area of Taihu Lake Basin, China. The results show that the urban township units have the highest level of urbanization and highest pollution, but the best water quality; meanwhile the suburban units have lower level of urbanization, but higher pollution and worse water quality. However, the rural units have the lowest level of urbanization and lowest pollution, mainly affected by upstream pollution, but worst water quality. Lastly, urban and rural planning committees should gradually resolve the issue of pollution control lagging behind urban life and urban development, giving priority to construction of centralized sewage treatment facilities and associated pipeline network coverage in the rural areas and suburban areas
