Baishui, Jishui County
It has 11,000 residents in an area of 102.8 square kilometres (39.7 sq mi).
Before Liberation, the town was known as Baishui Township (白水乡).
In 1951 part of its territory was used to form the new township of Dongying (东营, meaning east camp). Seven years later, as the 2nd 5-year plan (AKA Great Leap Forward) got underway, the two territories were recombined as Dongying.
Baishui was created as a People's commune in 1972, by the addition to Dongying Commune of two production brigades—Hengchuan and Chanxi—originally in Qiubei Commune.
The town also runs 8 village committees :
