Water Quality of Victoria Harbour

139. The waters of Hong Kong not only have great visual and ecological values, but are also ideal for recreational and sports activities. With the completion of the Harbour Area Treatment Scheme Stage 2A a year ago, the water quality of Victoria Harbour has significantly improved. We will maintain our efforts and construct dry weather flow interceptors and rehabilitate trunk sewers in Kowloon and Tsuen Wan to reduce the discharge of residual pollutants into Victoria Harbour and ameliorate the odour problem of the inshore water. A consultancy study to further upgrade inshore water quality and the general environment of Victoria Harbour will be completed next year.

Marine Cleanliness

140. We have strengthened collaboration with Guangdong in examining ways to reduce marine refuse and set up a notification system. Relevant departments will allocate additional resources to enhance their capacity in handling marine refuse.
