Our team members were interviewed by RTHK radio programme “Backchat” about water security and water quality in Hong Kong.
Listen to RTHK programme “Backchat” – Water Security here: Guangzhou and Shenzhen authorities have warned of water shortages that could last until next spring as the East River, the major source of fresh water for Hong Kong, continues to be affected by the most severe drought in decades. Hongkongers have been warned against complacency over the SAR’s water supplies. A prominent engineer says the local government needs to look for alternative water sources as well as increasing awareness of water conservation among the local population.
Listen to RTHK programme “Backchat” – Water quality in Hong Kong here: A new study this week by Swiss and Swedish researchers found that rain water everywhere around the world is now unsafe to drink because of the presence of dangerous levels of so-called ‘forever chemicals’ —Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl — or PFAS. These are substances that are commonly found in a variety of consumer goods, from non-stick pans to paint and waterproof clothing.
