The report describes the main events of the project work performed during the total project period from November 1996 to June 2000 on CHN 017 "Surveillance of Water Quality in the Songhua River System in Heilongjiang Province, P.R. of China". Four automatic monitoring stations were installed in the Songhua River System. Instruments for a mobile monitoring station were also delivered. The monitoring instruments cover continuos measurements of water quality, with special emphasise on nutrients and organic load. The monitoring results are transferred to the Heilongjiang Environmental Monitoring Central Station in Harbin (HEMCS) and stored in the ENSIS system, an Environmental Surveillance and Information System, which now is fully operating. Installation of ENSIS, training in operation, and use of the system as an environmental management tool were important parts of the project. After finalisation of the project ENSIS also holds environmental information from the last 12 years of work by HEMCS. Necessary hard and software for the Chinese partners to run ENSIS were delivered as part of the project. Also an ion chromatograph and an atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) have been installed in the laboratory at HEMCS. A summary description of the abatement strategy for the Mudanjiang catchment is presented, combined with information on project workshops, meetings and project costs.
