“Yuen Long Effluent Polishing Plant” Project by Drainage Services Department

The Drainage Services Department (DSD) has been striving to adopt renewable energy technologies on a wide scale in its existing and new facilities for reducing carbon emission and thus combating climate change. Through the Expo, DSD will introduce its blue green infrastructure project “Yuen Long Effluent Polishing Plant”.

“Yuen Long Effluent Polishing Plant” project will increase the treatment capacity of Yuen Long Sewage Treatment Works from 70,000m3 to 150,000m3 per day by phase. With the increase in sewage treatment volume, DSD will enhance treatment level at tertiary effluent polishing standard to ensure that its discharge will comply with more stringent environmental requirements, thus protecting the ecological setting of Deep Bay.
