[Water Resources] The water resources in Rushan are mainly composed of surface runoff and underground latent water resulting from atmospheric precipitation, whose resource quantity and space-time allocation are restricted and affected by rainfall. By the end of 2010, the assessment of the water resources by Weihai City showed that, in Rushan, the average total number of water resources over the years was 488 million m3, the number of the average surface water resources over the years was 430 million m3, and the number of the average underground latent water over the years was 147 million m3. The surface water can be used 105 million m3, and the groundwater can be mined 87 million m3. Most of the surface water enjoys quality of class Ⅲ above, being part of the first type of water containing bicarbonate, calcium group, magnesium group, presents neutral or weak alkaline (pH 7 ~ 8, hardness 4.2 to 8.4 odH), which is suitable for drinking and agricultural irrigation. With pore water, fissure water, vein rock water constituting the major storage of the underground latent water, they are mainly the bicarbonate water seeing chemical, then the sulphate water (chiefly distributed in the middle and lower reaches of Huangli River basin), whose degree of salinity is less than 1g/l, is fresh water. Lied in Tangshang village, Fengjia town, Xiaotang Hot Spring is developed in medical care and bathing, and its water temperature is 40℃~60℃, up to 75℃ and the salinity degree of it is 2.644g/l. Rushan City is the area poor in water resources, reflecting that the average per capita water availability holds 1/3 of the whole nation, therefore, it seems to be a crucial work to efficiently use and effectively protected the water resources.
Rivers within Rushan belong to peninsula margin drainage system, and they are rain source rivers in the monsoon region. The rivers are endowed with many characteristics: the gradient of river beds is large, the origin of those rivers is short, but they crashes their way through the city with sharply rising and falling, additionally, seasonal factors place a huge influence in volume of runoff, especially in the dry season, river break-flow becomes a frequent occurrence.

So large-scale is the Longjiaoshan reservoir that it can accommodate 111 million m3 totally, of those, the capacity of Xingli reservoir is 67 million m3. It is the biggest key water source location making fresh water and drinking water in Rushan, listed in China Important Drinking Water Resource Location.

The inter-tidal zone is rich in biomass, with an average total biomass of 333.68g/m 3, mainly includes algae and mollusc. The average biological density is 1538.26/m3, mainly includes mollusc and crustaceans.
It is where diverse wild animals coexist in like 18 species of beasts, 189 species of birds, 7 species of amphibians, 14 species of reptiles, 29 species of fish.
