The Lhalu wetland with a total area of 12.2 square kilometers, accounting 11.5 percent of urban areas in Lhasa, is acclaimed as "the Lung of Lhasa" for its significant role in protecting Lhasa's environment for adsorbing 5,475 tons of dust in the air and cleaning more than 10 million tons of urban sewage every year.

50 million yuan has been invested into the second phase protection plan of hLalu wetland, which aims to protect water sources and vegetations.

Choeta, stationmaster of Lhalu wetland Management Office said:"All the workers are busy in constructing. The second phase of the project started since the end of last year and is expected to be completed at the end of May."
