  • Remedial measures were promptly taken by the Government:
  • Enforcing the pollution control legislation.

  • Implementing the Hong Kong Island South Sewerage Master Plan to divert sewage and polluted storm flow away from the beach.

  • Installing Dry Weather Flow (DWF) interceptors to intercept flow from polluted storm water drains.
