Anchor for Students’ Voyage

前深水埗配水庫導賞團現已接受報名 (截止日期:12月7日)

Dear students,

 

You are invited to join a guided tour at the Ex-Sham Shui Po Service Reservoir (前深水埗配水庫) during this term break after exam!

 

Built in 1904, it was the first locally built circular underground service reservoir to provide fresh water to residents who lived in Kowloon Tong, Sham Shui Po and Tai Hang Tung. It ceased operations in 1970, after the Shek Kip Mei Fresh Water Service Reservoir – which had a storage capacity of 30 million gallons – was commissioned.  Re-discovered in 2020, the site is now classified as a Grade 1 historical building.   Started from December 2021, guided tours is opened to public by Water Supplies Department.
