From left to right, the four chinese characters are read:

dang 1: meaning Party; referring to the communist party;
he 2: river
shui 3: water
ku 4: bank;

together the four character mean the name of a reservoir "reservoir of the Party"

"Danghe" is just a district of Dunhuang, China, not the party.

Dang He is a river, no connection to communists, this reservoir is the only water head of Dunhuang, very very important,
