Paper Title:
Development-Induced Water Pollution and Control of Medium-Small-Size Cities in Southern China
  Abstract

With the rapid urbanization, medium-small-size cities have become essential to urban system in China. However, due to limited financial and technology conditions, development has lead to serious water pollution. This study statistically analyzed the socioeconomic development and water pollution situations of 10 typical medium-small-size cities in southern China with factor analysis and find that: 1) industry development is the major contributor to water pollution, so it should be well planned; 2) pollution in rural area is mainly caused by high concentration of pollutant discharged, and the control should emphasize on the disposal of pollutant; 3) in urban areas, the large quantum of sewage emission has a greater contribution to water pollution, and water conservation will bring a great improvement in the level of pollution control. The results propose some ways more effective to control water pollution for medium-small-size cities in southern China.
