San Tin Flood Protection Scheme
San Tin Flood Protection Scheme constructs the embankment surrounding the villages to keep floodwater away from the village. A stormwater drainage system is also provided within the village area to collect and convey stormwater to a stormwater storage pond. Area of the storage pond is about 16,400 square metres. When the water level in the pond reaches pre-set levels, the pump in the stormwater pumping station will start automatically, water in the pond will be pumped to the adjacent channel outside the embankment.
