Hong Kong Water Report 2015

BMI View: Although Hong Kong has little in the way of domestic water resources, the city state benefitsfrom strong water infrastructure - a selling point for investors. At present, however, there are limited newprojects in the pipeline and many that are in progress are nearing completion. Under the Total WaterManagement Strategy, Hong Kong's Water Supplies Department (WSD) is hoping to contain the country'sfreshwater consumption while also tapping into alternative sources of water for daily use.

A major growth area over the medium to long term, though to 2019 and beyond is water reclamation. Thissegment represents a key means of attaining water security for the city-state, and receives considerableinvestment. This can include both desalination and the reuse of treated wastewater, both of which will seestrong growth over the next 10 years. As yet, Hong Kong does not fully capitalise on this resource,extracting just 270mn cubic metres a year, largely for flushing purposes. This underdevelopment can, webelieve, be ascribed to the continued overreliance on imported waters from Guangdong in China, whichcurrently account for around 89% of all water consumed in the city-state.
