At first glance, it may seem like just a black truck filled with bottles of water.Its cargo of more than 500 bottles of Nongfu Spring, a ubiquitous Chinese brand, filled with contaminated drinking water from the village of Xiaohaotu in China's northwest Shaanxi province has been driven around Beijing as a reminder of the costs of the country's rapid economic development.The truck, which had already toured the capital's 798 art district prior to Saturday, is now off the road, but Nut Brother hopes to persevere with the mobile exhibition using a smaller vehicle.Across China, much of the water is "unfit for human contact," according to a 2017 report by Greenpeace East Asia, and 14 of 31 provinces failed to meet water quality targets despite a nationwide push for improvement.
