After days of near constant rain, the city of Wuhan continues to suffer from severe flooding. According to a statement given by Wuhan's flood control headquarters during a press conference, cumulative rainfall in the city between June 30 and July 6 exceeded 560.5 millimeters. The flooding has led to 2.3 billion yuan in economic losses and has disturbed the daily lives of more than 750,000 people. By 12 p.m. on July 6, 14 people had died in the flood and one more had gone missing.
Beijing Normal University student Wang Xinyi, who is originally from Wuhan, made the decision to launch an investigation into how government money has been spent in the lead-up to this heavy rain period.
In 2013, the Wuhan Water Conservancy Bureau released a report on drainage infrastructure plans for the next three years. The report outlined a 13-billion-yuan project to improve the city's drainage systems. However, three years later, the fact is that much of Wuhan is currently underwater.
On July 7, Wang mailed an application to the Wuhan Water Conservancy Bureau requesting that the government make public the details of their spending of the 13 billion yuan that was designated for updating Wuhan's drainage system. Officials from the Water Conservancy Bureau claimed that they have not yet received Wang's letter. Once they do, they promise that Wang can expect a response within 15 days.
