Sewage plant open day underway

August 27, 2022

The Drainage Services Department announced that it is holding the Relocation of Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works to Caverns - Community Liaison Centre Open Day 2022 on August 27 and 28.


Aside from showcasing the project’s latest developments, the occasion is being held to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.


Secretary for Development Bernadette Linn, accompanied by Director of Drainage Services Alice Pang, joined the public during today’s open day event, showing support for colleagues. Ms Linn then visited the works site in the cavern to learn about the project’s progress and challenges.


The relocation of Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works to caverns is the largest cavern project in Hong Kong. Upon its completion, the environment of the existing plant and its surroundings will be enhanced and about 28 hectares of land will be released.


The department has applied innovative technologies and equipment in the project to enhance the efficiency and quality of the works and reduce the environmental impact and safety risks.


In addition to featuring exhibitions and game booths during the event, the department’s engineers are introducing cavern project highlights and the drill-and-blast construction method.


The public can also use the Immersive Cave Automatic Virtual Environmental System to view construction in the cavern, and learn about the cavern project and the department's work in sewage treatment and flood prevention.


Moreover, visitors can enjoy the sustainability design elements as they tour the rain garden and the greening back garden of the community liaison centre.
