Marked improvement in water quality of beaches in Southern District


Back in the 1980s, many of the 12 gazetted beaches in Southern District were not in good shape. Middle Bay and Repulse Bay Beaches could not meet the water quality objective (WQO) for bathing beaches and were on the verge of closing.

  • Government’s actions:
  • implemented pollution control legislation

  • diverted polluting stormwater channels away from beaches

  • built new sewage treatment facilities

  • implemented public sewer connection programme in beach hinterlands
