(1130 CR M11)70,000 RELOCATED TO NEW HOMES DATELINE: Nov. 30, 2010 LENGTH: 00:00:51 FILE VO More than 70,000 people in central China's Hubei Province have been relocated to make way for the south-north water diversion project. Local authorities say residents from Shiyan city have settled in new communities in other parts of the province. Their homes will be submerged after the project is completed. Another 10,000 people will be moved to nearby highlands and mountains. The project is designed to take water from China's largest river, the Yangtze, to feed the drought-prone areas in the north, including the capital Beijing. Water will flow northward via three routes. The middle one involves the relocation of 330,000 people in central China's Hubei and Henan province. In September, Henan reported the resettlement of more than 60,000 residents.
