Flood Management in Hong Kong - 16th October 2019

Stormwater Drainage is of common concern to professionals working on infrastructural development: urban planners and development professionals, transportation engineers, structural engineers, geotechnical engineers in additional to hydro-environmental scientists and engineers dedicated to the water sectors.

This one-day CPD course will first share with participants the instructor's experience in developing Hong Kong’s flood management infrastructure from its infancy to a comprehensive strategy based on structural and non-structural measures, with carefully formulated and regularly reviewed drainage master plans on a catchment basis.

Structural flood management measures mainly consist of river training and village polders in the rural areas as well as nullahs and drainage pipes, underground flood storage reservoirs, stormwater pumping stations and drainage tunnels in the urban areas. In the past several decades, environmentally and ecologically friendly features have become increasingly important to mitigate adverse environmental impacts of the structural measures.

Non-structural flood management measures include mainly land use planning and development control, public education and flood emergency contingency plans.

The second part of the course will address flood management in times of Climate Change.

To meet Climate Change challenges (with increasingly heavy rainstorms, rising mean sea levels as well as increasing storm surges due to more severe typhoons) in addition to urban development needs, Government has adopted a new flood management strategy, based on Blue-Green Infrastructure, to mimic the natural hydrological processes. "Blue" refers open water bodies in rivers and lakes and "Green" means landscaping works such as vegetation cover and aquatic plants.
