Pokfulam village is a place without public sewage system. That means that wastewater produced by villagers would not be treated. On the contrary, the wastewater flows directly into the rainwater channels and is transported to the Waterfall Bay.
The combined system of sewage and rainwater spoils this beautiful village.
Villagers’ houses are near shallow drainage. Wastewater from houses first goes into the shallow drainage, then flows into the three main streams through the village. These three main streams connect with each other at the lower course of the village near the garage. Such system causes not only adverse visualization, but also hygiene problem.
