About this event

ICE 200 UK Delegation and Japan Delegation 2019 were successfully held in November 2018 and March 2019 respectively. Following the delegations, the delegates will be sharing the knowledge and experience they learnt through the delegations in this dissemination seminar.

While the two delegations highlighting the importance of sustainability and resilience, Drainage Services Department of the HKSAR has promulgated the adoption of sustainable and resilient drainage design concepts. Major changes have been incorporated in the latest edition of Stormwater Drainage Manual (fifth edition). The changes include review on rainfall analysis and sea level analysis, consideration of climate change and promotion of blue-green concept in drainage infrastructure.

After the presentation by the delegates, Mr Leung Cheuk Lun from the Drainage Services Department will give a presentation on “Resilience Defines Our Future”. The presentation will provide experience sharing on the practical adoption of “Sponge City” concept in Happy Valley Underground Stormwater Storage Scheme. It will also discuss the concept of resilient in design of drainage works and options or works being studied by the Drainage Services Department to transform engineered channels into revitalised rivers.

  • Capacity: 120
  • Refreshment will be provided
  • Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis and priority will be given to ICE Student and Graduate Members
