River Monitoring Teams consist of secondary school teachers and students, monitor six major local rivers: Lam Tsuen River, Kam Tin River, Tung Chung River, Shan Pui River, Shing Mun River and Tuen Mun River. Members visit the upper, middle and lower courses and estuaries of the monitored rivers, collecting water samples to measure the river’s environmental information and observe its ecology. The data collected can help compare the changes in water quality and environment, thus, playing a valuable monitoring role.
Furthermore, given the Government’s Tung Chung New Town Expansion Project, we have been dedicated to monitoring the Tung Chung River in recent years. We collect environmental data at different sections and estuaries of the river so as to monitor the impact of the New Town Expansion Project on the river and to provide required statistics for the conservation of the Tung Chung River.
