      Brief introduction:

Qingcaosha Reservoir is located on Qingcaosha, an alluvial sandbar northwest of Changxing Island.  Because Qingcaosha has a large amount of high-quality fresh water, the Shanghai municipal government decided in 2006 to build Qingcaosha into Shanghai's water source to change the pattern that more than 80% of Shanghai's tap water source comes from Huangpu River.

Qingcaosha Reservoir is the largest Jiangxin Reservoir in China at present (2012), with a maximum effective capacity of 553 million cubic meters and a designed effective capacity of 435 million cubic meters.  It has a total length of 43 kilometers of levees, enclosing nearly 70 square kilometers of water, equivalent to 10 West Lake in Hangzhou.
