Following the commencement of flow turning process under Harbour Area Treatment Scheme (HATS) Stage 2A in September 2015, the water quality of Victoria Harbour will further improve.
However, due to the residual pollution discharges into the urban coastal waters, i.e. those not collected by our sewerage system due to various factors such as drain misconnections, and polluted surface run-offs from streets etc., the odour and visual impacts caused by near shore pollution to our urban coastal waters remain subjects of concerns by the local community, in particular at areas that are easily accessible by the public and close to population and business centres. Upon completion of HATS Stage 2A, near shore pollution in Victoria Harbour will become our priority water quality problem. To deal with it will require measures that can effectively reduce or collect the many residual discharges from a wide range of small sources that are large in numbers in the urban area. We will carry out a consultancy study to formulate recommendations and timtable to enhance the leisure and amenity value of the coastal areas of Victoria Harbour.
