Land improvement project in Zhangbao Village, Renxing Town, Lufeng City

The construction scale is nearly 500 mu, and the planned investment is 11.95 million yuan. The land improvement (quality improvement) project in Zhangbao Village, Renxing Town, Lufeng City, Chuxiong Prefecture attracted doubts one month after its completion.

Some whistleblowers claimed that the construction party of the project did not construct according to the parameters required by the planning and design, and the constructed farmland irrigation canals did not meet the requirements. The cost is about 200,000 yuan. “In order to save costs, we obviously cut corners. Just one month after the canal was built, some places began to collapse. It is a tofu project.”

In response to the above doubts, the relevant person in charge of the Natural Resources Bureau of Lufeng City replied to The Paper (www.thepaper.cn), saying that the experts of the acceptance team used a hoe to dig up some sections of the site and found that the construction quality did not meet the design requirements after the completion of the project. At present, the rectification opinions have been fed back to the construction party and the rectification is in progress.

One month after the completion of the project, the section of the field drained from the canal collapsed due to water erosion, and the farmers used plastic bags to fill it with soil.

Accused of cutting corners

The whistleblower told The Paper that just one month after the completion of the project in Zhangbao Village, Renxing Township, there was a landslide, and the bottom of the canal was washed away by the current. According to the planning and design requirements of the project, the bottom of the canal must be 15 centimeters thick, the width of the ditch wall must be 20 centimeters on one side, and the width on the other side must be 30 centimeters. While waiting for the easy-to-see places to meet the requirements, the remote plots will be fooled.”

Recently, a reporter from The Paper saw at the project site of Zhangbao Village, Renxing Township, that the newly-built rice terraces are patchwork, the roads open to traffic have been repaired to the fields, and some people are diverting water to irrigate the rice fields. The surface of the canal is uneven, the height of the canal is uneven, the width of the ditch wall is uneven, and part of the concrete at the bottom of the ditch has been washed away. In addition, some of the canals diverted water to the outlets of the rice fields, and some land subsidence due to water erosion, causing the bottom of the canals to hang in the air. Afraid of the loss of farmland due to the impact of water flow, some farmers filled the soil with plastic bags. Using a tape measure, it can be found that in relatively remote plots, the bottom of the ditch should be 15 cm thick according to the requirements, and some are only about 7 cm thick, while some ditch walls that require a width of 20 cm are only 16 cm. One side requires a 30 cm wide ditch wall, and some are only about 27 cm.

According to the person who broke the news, calculated according to the standard, the bottom of a 1-meter ditch needs 0.12 cubic meters of concrete. Roughly calculated according to the concrete construction strength of the canal in Zhangbao Village, 1 cubic meter of concrete can be saved at the bottom of a 20-meter ditch. 10 kilometers, based on the concrete cost of 400 yuan per cubic meter, the cost saved can reach 200,000 yuan.

Natural Resources Bureau: Preliminary acceptance did find problems

On September 29, 2022, after public bidding, the Natural Resources and Planning Bureau of Chuxiong Prefecture signed an investment and construction contract for the above-mentioned project with Chuxiong Prefecture Chuanjiang Land Development Co., Ltd.

According to the person in charge of the Natural Resources Bureau of Lufeng City, Chuxiong Prefecture Chuanjiang Land Development Co., Ltd. is the investor, planned and designed by the Chuxiong Survey Institute of Yunnan Nonferrous Geology Bureau, and the construction party is Yunnan Dingxuan Construction Engineering Co., Ltd. Tianyancha information shows that these three units are all state-owned enterprises, and the investors and construction parties are all operated by the state-owned capital of Chuxiong Prefecture.

The planning and design unit of the project, the staff of the Chuxiong Survey Institute of the Yunnan Nonferrous Geological Bureau, confirmed the planning and design requirements mentioned by the whistleblower. According to the standard, the section of the canal is divided into main canal and branch canal. The section of the main canal is 40 cm wide and 50 cm deep, and the section of the branch canal is 30*40. The ditch wall requires a thickness of 20 centimeters on one side and 30 centimeters on the other side, and the thickness of the ditch bottom is 20 centimeters and 15 centimeters respectively.

According to the requirements for construction quality in the project bidding document, it is in line with the “Land Consolidation Project Acceptance Regulations” (TD/T1013-2013) of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Yunnan Provincial Natural Resources Industry Standard “Land Consolidation Project Acceptance Regulations” (Trial 2012-11-10 ) requirements, one-time acceptance.

In response to the above-mentioned allegations of cutting corners, the Lufeng Natural Resources Bureau responded that after the completion of the project at the end of May 2023, experts from the acceptance team used a hoe to dig up some sections during the preliminary acceptance and found that the construction quality did not meet the design requirements. Feedback the found problems into rectification opinions to the construction party, which is in the process of rectification.

According to the requirements of the design specification, the ditch wall of the canal needs to be 20 cm, and the width of the part of the ditch wall that has been completed is only 17 cm.

Li Guosheng, head of the Land and Space Ecological Restoration Unit of the Natural Resources Bureau of Lufeng City, who is in charge of the project, introduced that the project in Zhangbao Village will start construction in November 2022 and will be completed in early May 2023. The construction scale is 497 mu, and the calculated investment is 11.95 million yuan. Yuan, “The actual investment has not been settled yet, and it is being settled.”

The relevant person in charge of the unit said that the design of the canal must meet the water demand of the cultivated land at the project site, and the design parameters will be adjusted in due course according to the terrain and water consumption.

How to rectify the completed canal projects that do not meet the specification requirements? Torn down and rebuilt or repaired on the original basis? The person in charge of the Lufeng Natural Resources Bureau did not give a clear answer. According to his introduction, the project has a one-year quality guarantee period and quality guarantee money. If the final acceptance cannot be passed, the construction party will be blacklisted. “The specific acceptance period is not clear, it may be the end of the year, it may be next year, or it may be It’s the year after tomorrow.”

The project involved is part of the Chuxiong Prefecture Farmland Requisition and Compensation Balance Project (2022-2024). The approval document of the Chuxiong Prefecture Development and Reform Commission shows that after the implementation of the balance project of cultivated land occupation and compensation in Chuxiong Prefecture, the prefecture can increase the area of ‚Äč‚Äčcultivated land by 287,300 mu, with a total construction scale of 555,300 mu. The main contents of the proposed construction include land leveling projects, Irrigation and drainage works, field road works and other works. The estimated total investment of the project is 11.302 billion yuan, and the estimated net income is 9.802 billion yuan.

According to the introduction of the person in charge of the Lufeng Natural Resources Bureau to The Paper, based on the consideration of cultivated land protection and food security, under the overall planning and deployment of the state bureau, a large number of the above-mentioned projects have been implemented in the whole city of Lufeng City. The slope is related to factors such as the distance between villages and towns. The selected renovation sites were all dry and barren land before. After the renovation, the flatness of the land, the accessibility of the field and the grain production will be improved.

According to local media reports, when Jinshan Town, where the project had been implemented before, ushered in its first harvest season, some villagers said that the previous fields were dry land and fragmented, and they could only grow some corn and wheat. The roads and water are now open, so rice and vegetables can be grown, and the economic income has increased compared to before.
