The Drainage Services Department (DSD) will hold open days at Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works on January 19 and 20 (Saturday and Sunday).
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the department, the theme this year is "30 Years of Groundwork, Embracing a New Age", featuring the DSD's 4Rs: review of the DSD's 30 years, river revitalisation, rehabilitation of ageing drains and sewers, and relocation of Shatin Sewage Treatment Works to caverns. Through exhibition panels, model display and guided tours, members of the public can have a better understanding of the department's development and effort over the years, as well as the work done on flood prevention, sewage treatment, and combating and mitigating climate change.
The two-day event will also include stage performances, food trucks, game booths, a fun area for kids and a parent-child planting activity. Members of the public are welcome to join this wide range of entertaining and educational programmes.
Admission to these activities is free of charge. Free shuttle bus services will be provided at the following locations on the open days from 9.15am to 4pm at intervals of 10 to 15 minutes:
* Pick-up/drop-off area near the MTR University Station Exit B bus terminus; and
