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

Government’s mitigation measures:

  • Now all Southern District beaches meet the bathing water quality objective. These beaches provide good water quality and scenic environment for the public to enjoy.
