The expansion of the Tai Po Water Treatment works (WTW) forms part of the overall strategy to enhance the resilience of the water supply system in Hong Kong. Together with Sha Tin WTW, Tai Po WTW serves over 3 million customers. Through expanding Tai Po WTW, the Water Supplies Department of Hong Kong SAR (WSD) aims to achieve a balanced distribution of treatment capacity territory-wide and maintain expansion flexibility to meet future demand. The project will provide improved water quality (4-log or 99.99% inactivation of water borne pathogens), enhanced environmental safety by reducing chlorine usage, and sustainable best practices in water and energy efficiency. The state-of-art innovative design incorporates onsite generation ozone and chlorine.
In this technical seminar, the unique story of developing Tai Po WTW in phases, from being initiated by the population need as a strategic installation in the past, transforming to the present expansion for water supply reliability enhancement and leveraging future inspiration to the waterworks counterparts will be presented. As a model of sustainability innovation, the presentation will also discuss how the sustainable core values of reserving the resources, protecting the environment and caring the people are integrated in Tai Po WTW from the early planning stage through design, construction, operation and engagement.
Free of Charge.
