Shek Chung Au Sewage Pumping Station
The Shek Chung Au Sewage Pumping Station (SCASPS) is constructed following the recommendation made in the 1994 review of the North District Sewerage Master Plan conducted by Environmental Protection Department. As part of the long-term measures to address the water pollution problem in the North District, the SCASPS helps convey sewage collected from Sha Tau Kok area to Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works for proper treatment and disposal.
In line with DSD's policy of environmental protection, measures for reducing carbon emissions have also been adopted by this project in an effort to minimize impacts to the environment. For instance, vertical green walls are installed and over 40% of the total roof area is covered by greenery.
DSD is committed to provide world-class wastewater and stormwater drainage services enabling the sustainable development of Hong Kong. Aiming at improving drainage services in an environmentally responsible manner, DSD is strongly motivated to go green in their functional building.
Environmental protection and measures for reducing overall project carbon emissions have been adopted in an effort to minimize impacts to the environment. To enhance the sustainability design, the major green features adopted in this project are highlighted below.
