The Drainage Services Department will hold open days at Stonecutters Island Sewage Treatment Works on November 16 and 17 from 9.30am to 5pm.
The open days mark the finale of the department’s 30th anniversary celebration, with the theme “30 Years of Groundwork, Embracing a New Age” and featuring the “4Rs”: review of the department’s 30 years, revitalisation of rivers and nullahs, rehabilitation of ageing drains and sewers, and relocation of the Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works to caverns.
Through guided tours, exhibition panels and a model display, visitors can have a better understanding of the department’s development and effort over the years, as well as the work done on flood prevention, sewage treatment, and combating and mitigating climate change.
The open days will also include other entertaining and educational programmes, such as stage performances, game booths, science talks, a photo-taking corner and food trucks.
A presentation ceremony will be held on the first day of the event for the sewage tunnel of the Harbour Area Treatment Scheme, which is being recognised by Guinness World Records as the deepest urban sewage system installed tunnel.
Admission is free. Free shuttle bus services will also be provided.
