Nach Angaben der staatlichen Medienagentur Xinhua vom 29. Juli 2010 sind durch Regenfälle und Überschwemmungen 7000 Fässer einer Chemiefabrik in den Fluss Songhua gespült worden. Rund 3000 dieser Fässer enthielten rund 500 Tonnen Chlormethan, die anderen Fässer waren leer. Daraufhin wurde die Wasserversorgung der 4,3 Milionen Einwohner der nordostchinesischen Stadt Jilin am 28. Juli 2010 zeitweise unterbrochen.

Environmental authorities in northeastern China are monitoring chemical levels in a major river after floodwaters carried more than 3,000 barrels filled with toxic chemicals into it. State-run Xinhua news agency says the containers floated into the Songhua River in northeastern Jilin province Wednesday after flood waters swept through a chemical plant. Another 4,000 barrels that washed out of the factory were empty.
Officials briefly cut off water to Jilin city, leaving its four million citizens dependent on bottled water for a day.
