A reliable freshwater supply is always of paramount importance in sustaining Hong Kong's development and economic growth. However, we are facing various challenges in securing a stable water supply, including the increasing local water demand arising from population and economic growth, and frequent occurrence of extreme weather conditions.
Under the "Total Water Management Strategy" (TWM) strategy implemented by Water Supplies Department (WSD), the finished Tseung Kwan O Desalination Plant (TKODP) will be among the strategic infrastructure of WSD in its mission to provide reliable and adequate supply of potable water resilient to climate change.
Through participating in this technical visit, participants will be able to visit the First Stage of TKODP, where the adoption of advanced water treatment approaches such as the reverse osmosis technology will be introduced. Innovative construction technologies and sustainable design employed in the project will also be covered.
