From olden times Hita has been called 'Waterside Hita';
clear streams, such as the Mikuma River, are symbo]ic of the town.
However, with modernization, pollution has even reached the clear
streams of Hita. Accordingly, the construction of waterworks
(including simple waterworks) and drains in being undretaken
to protect our clean rivers, deliver the delicious water of
yesteryear to each home, and bring back the murmuring of
the crystal streams.
In Hita, we can watch the flitting fireflies and leaping
silver fish reminding us of the pleasure of living in the town.
PRESERVlNG OUR PURE, DELICIOUS WATER
The public drainage system not only handles water purification,
but also veares responsibility for making the city an Aquapolis.
