Abstract: Objective　To evaluate the effect of the water⁃saving irrigation project on Oncomelania hupensis snail control in hilly regions of Yixing City, Jiangsu Province. Methods　A retrospective survey combined with cross⁃sectional investigation was employed. The implementation of the water⁃saving irrigation development project in Yixing City from 2005 to 2007 was retrospectively collected, and the snail status was collected in regions where the water⁃saving irrigation project was located and the project⁃affected regions from 2003 to 2018, to examine the effect of the project on snail control. In addition, a cross⁃sectional survey was performed to investigate the destruction of the water⁃saving irrigation project in 2018. Results　A total of 22 water⁃saving irrigation projects were implemented in 5 townships in hilly regions of Yixing City from 2005 to 2007, where snail habitats were treated covering 266.97 hm2. Before the implementation of the project from 2003 to 2006, cumulative 47.87 hm2 snail habitats were detected in regions where the project was located, and no snails were found in regions where the project was located from the implementation of the project in 2006 to 2018. However, a few snails were found in the project⁃affected regions in 2017 and 2018. In addition, there were problems found in the later⁃stage maintenance and management of the project. Conclusions　The water⁃saving irrigation projects shows a high efficiency on snail control in hilly regions of Yixing City. The later⁃stage maintenance of the project and monitoring of snails remain to be intensified to enhance the snail control efficiency of the water⁃saving irrigation project.
