U.S. firm to assess dam safety at 35 Hong Kong reservoirs

U.S. engineering firm Black &Veatch has been named to assess the condition of water reservoirs in Hong Kong to enhance the safety and reliability of reservoir operations.

Black &Veatch said October 15 it was selected by the Water Supplies Department in Hong Kong for work over five years to recommend safety enhancements at ten impounding reservoirs and 25 large service reservoirs, plus providing advisory services on safety-related issues for all reservoirs.

The firm’s team for the work includes engineers based in Hong Kong, two United Kingdom reservoir safety panel engineers from Black &Veatch’s Europe water business, and a principal dam engineer from the firm’s team in Australia.

Black &Veatch began reservoir engineering work in Hong Kong in the 1930s on the Shing Mun scheme.
