The Yigong Embankment is a section of the Yangtze River Dike, guarding the east gateway of Jiujiang city in East China's Jiangxi province. In the event of water calamities, not only the adjacent farmland will be flooded, but the city's main urban area will also be threatened.

In 1998, on this dike, a man wearing a straw hat was patrolling back and forth day and night. His name is Chen Shentao, and he was the Party secretary of Jiangji village, in the city's Xingang town.
