    Providing an adequate water supply for Hong Kong has always been difficult because there are few natural lakes, rivers or substantial underground water sources. The annual rainfall averages 2 214.3 millimetres but this is insufficient to meet current demands — the average daily consumption of potable water during 2002/03 being 2.63 million cubic metres. The principal functions of the Water Supplies Department are to collect, store, purify and distribute potable water to consumers, and provide adequate new resources and installations to maintain a satisfactory standard of water supply. The department also supplies seawater for flushing.

    [edit] Sources of water

    Hong Kong's two main sources of water are rainfall from natural catchments and supply from Guangdong Province. Shortage of natural storage reservoir sites led to the construction of Hong Kong's first 'reservoir in the sea' at Plover Cove - the Plover Cove Reservoir. The initial scheme, completed in 1967, was created by damming, and draining an inlet of Tolo Harbour and had a storage of 170 million cubic metres. The storage was increased in 1973 to 230 million cubic metres by raising the dam. A similar but larger scheme at High Island, completed in 1978, has a capacity of 281 million cubic metres. The total storage capacity of Hong Kong’s reservoirs is 586 million cubic metres.

    Desalination had been one source of water supply in Hong Kong. A plant was set up in Lok On Pai. The plant later ceased its operation for its expensive cost comparing to Dongjing water. The plant was finally dismantled.
