Restoration of Furo River (Kawagoe, Sayama, Tokorozawa and Iruma Cities and Mizuho Town, Saitama Prefecture)

Furo River, running through Saitama Prefecture, was once called "Toshitorazu (meaning unaging) River" because the main water source was a spring that dried up in winter and the flowing water did not see the old year out.. However, a large quantity of living drainage was discharged into the river due to the population increase in the basin and the river was named the most contaminated river in Japan and such a disgraceful situation was continued in the past..
Now, the"basin sewage project for Furo River water quality environment conservation measures" are being conducted to recover the water environment by resolving the sewage-treated water into Furo River. Moreover, efforts are being made to conserve and regenerate the water environment through water environment improvement projects such as "Limpid Stream Renaissance 21" and "Limpid Stream Renaissance II".
