Advisory Committee on Water Supplies

Advisory Committees

Welcome to the Homepage of the Advisory Committee on Water Supplies (Advisory Committee). The launching of this web site aims at promoting transparency and encouraging public participation in monitoring the matters relating to water supplies particularly on water resources, quality of water supplies and network management in Hong Kong. This is in line with the purpose of the formation of this Advisory Committee.

The predecessor of the Advisory Committee was the Advisory Committee on the Quality of Water Supplies, which was founded on 1st April 2000. In response to the concern of the public on the conservation and management of water resources, the Government has expanded the scope of the Advisory Committee and renamed it Advisory Committee on Water Resources and Quality of Water Supplies from 1st April 2012.

Against the growing expectation from the public on wider aspects of water supplies such as water network management in addition to water resources-related issues and the quality of water supplies in Hong Kong, the Government has further expanded the scope of the Advisory Committee to cover water network management and renamed it Advisory Committee on Water Supplies from 1st April 2016.

The Advisory Committee is an independent body comprising members from the public including academics, district councillors, green advocates, professionals, trades and officials from related government departments and bureau.

In this web site, we will introduce to you the work of the Advisory Committee and other relevant information. More importantly, we would like to invite your valuable comments and suggestions. Thank you.
