endeavour to make our activities as transparent as possible
to environmental stakeholders.
We held an Open Day on 1 & 2 March 2003 at the Stonecutters
Island Sewage Treatment Works to invite the public to visit
Hong Kong's world class sewage treatment facility and one
of the world's most efficient CEPT plant. This was the first
time the plant was open to public since its full commissioning
in December 2001. The event aimed to reveal to the stakeholders
- the public, the enormity of the task and the sophistication
behind treating sewage to protect Victoria Harbour from pollution.
The Open Day included video shows on DSD duties, a technical
tour of the plant, exhibitions and games. The activity was
a great success attracting 8,300 visitors over the two-day
We also communicate the content
of our work and Environmental Performance of our activities
through the DSD Homepage, which is freely accessible to the
public, the engineering profession and green groups.
Relevant stakeholders are consulted
as we propose new projects on sewerage, sewage treatment or
