"Xiganqu Canal" Landscape Engineering is now known as "Xichuan". It is located in Dameng Town, Zhongmou County, Zhengzhou City, and is 31 kilometers long. Before its reconstruction, most of the surrounding farmland had been abandoned, and the terrain was flat. Water surfaces were covered with floating agricultural household waste, weeds, etc. This canal had no water ecosystem. The purification level of this canal was weak and waterbodies exhibited eutrophication tendencies.
Following the ecological restoration, Xiganqu Canal is capable of alleviating floods. With its purification ability, water quality in Xiganqu Canal went up to the third class for water standards. Also, many biotic species can be found here. In this way, the Xiganqu Canal created recreational spots for the public and provides more opportunities for humans to get close to nature.

Ecological purification (eco-purification) has been conducted for Xiganqu Canal. Currently, the water is clear and clean and is up to the third class for national water standards
▽自然生态河区，以“生态湿地”为主，利用不同植栽来达到净化水质。The natural ecological river area is mainly an "ecological wetland". Diverse plants that purify water grow here.
▽河心岛、驳岸边缘种植的耐冲刷沉水植物，深根系挺水植物和湿生植物The River center island washes out resistance plants beside the revetment, as well as deep-rooted aquatic plants, and hygrophytes.
▽林荫步道夹岸河道空间The river course space with a tree-lined walkway meets the riverbank
▽连接生活平台的河道空间And, the river course space connects the residential platform
As an independent system, the river walk is closely linked to the Western Trunk Canal in multiple ways.
▽滨水生活区，以“生态栖息”为主，创造河滨动植物生态多样性与建立生态栖息地。Waterfront residential areas that mainly feature "ecological habitats" illustrate a beautiful picture of an ecological diversity of riverside animals and plants. It also establishes the ecological habitat for various species.
▽河滨休憩区，以“休憩活动”为主，利用多样平台区域或步道串连，营造多种水同亲水活动空间。Riverside recreation area features "Recreation Activities". A variety of water and hydrophilic activity spaces are designed and constructed here by connecting various kinds of platform areas or footpaths.
