T’o Chiang


a river in China, a left tributary of the Yangtze. The T’o Chiang is 623 km long and drains an area of 27,500 sq km. It rises in the eastern foothills of the Tahüe Shan, or Szechwan Alps, and flows through the Szechwan Basin, forming rapids along its course. Summer floods raise the river’s level by as much as 20 m. The mean flow rate is 450 cu m per sec. Water from the T’o Chiang is used for irrigation. The cities of Neichiang and Fushun are located along the river, and the city of Luchow is on its estuary.
