16 May 2023
The Secretary for Development, Ms Bernadette LINN invited three DSD engineers, Mr LAW Tsz-wai, Mr YEUNG Wai-shing and Mr TAI Wai-hin, to discuss strategies for flood prevention work, beautifying the river environment, and promoting a water-friendly culture.
Mr LAW explained the DSD’s “Three-pronged Flood Prevention Strategy”, including “Interception”, “Flood storage” and “Drainage Improvement”, to combat flooding threats at various locations. He also introduced the lately developed innovative technology called “Good Grab” (the Grab) to help remove refuse from river channels.
While Mr YEUNG mentioned that the DSD set up a drone team last year and trained over 20 colleagues to operate the drones. He also elaborated and demonstrated the operation of the drone.
At last, Mr TAI explained how the DSD has incorporated more people-oriented designs along the riversides to promote a water-friendly culture, using Nam Sang Wai in Yuen Long and Jordan Valley Channel as examples.
