Welcome Message

Welcome to the Homepage of the Drainage Services Department (DSD).

Our vision is to provide world-class wastewater and stormwater drainage services enabling the sustainable development of Hong Kong. Since the establishment in September 1989, DSD has made good progress in both sewage treatment and flood prevention. The completion of three drainage tunnels in Tsuen Wan, Lai Chi Kok and Hong Kong West, Sheung Wan Stormwater Storage Scheme, Regulation of Shenzhen River Stages I to III, Disinfection and Odour Control Facilities at Stonecutters Island Sewage Treatment Works, and the pilot scheme of water reclamation are examples of our encouraging achievements in recent years. During the implementation of our projects, we take into consideration various factors, including ecology conservation, compatibility with the local environment and public concerns.

In future, we will continue to implement various large-scale projects, including Kai Tak River Improvement Works, Happy Valley Underground Stormwater Storage Scheme and Regulation of Shenzhen River Stage IV, to uplift the flood protection level and alleviate the flood risk in the areas concerned. Moreover, Harbour Area Treatment Scheme Stage 2A has been commissioned within 2015 and further improve the water quality of Victoria Harbour.

As most of our works are carried out in public areas, they may cause inconvenience to members of the public. We are hence committed to formulating ways to minimize such disturbance. The support and understanding of the public is of utmost importance which encourages continuous improvement of our services.

In our Homepage, you can find the essential information of DSD and have a better understanding of our work. You are most welcome to share your views via e-mail (enquiry@dsd.gov.hk).
