HK needs new water sources: thinktank
(04-03 17:02)

An expert in water policy says Hong Kong urgently needs to improve water conservation and identify new water sources to meet an increasingly uncertain future due to climate change and competition for water supplies.
The Civic Exchange's Su Liu says Hong Kong is currently very vulnerable due to its dependence on the Dongjiang River for up to 80 percent of its water.
She told Janice Wong that the government needs to focus on ways to make use of waste water, while at the same time gathering more rainwater. --RTHK
