Strategic sewage disposal in Hong Kong
conference contributionposted on 12.02.2018, 15:11 by S.L. Tang
In my previous paper presented in the 21st WEDC Conference (Tang, 1995), the overall strategy used to tackle wastewater produced in the whole territory of Hong Kong was described. Also briefly mentioned in that paper was a mega scale project named “Strategic Sewage Disposal Scheme” which is being undertaken in Hong Kong. The scheme is not a solution to the water pollution problems in the whole territory but is only for solving the problems at the most densely populated urban areas, viz, Kowloon Peninsula, northern part of Hong Kong Island, and the harbour (named Victoria Harbour) separating Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island (see the rectangular frame in Figure 1). The current paper is to give a detail discussion on the strategic sewage disposal scheme (SSDS).
