In a Legislative Council meeting on Feb 1st, 2012, Dr. Raymond Ho, a legislative councillor, questioned the authorities if they were aware of the
foul odour in Cheung Chau and Lei Yue Mun typhoon shelters where many restaurants are famous for offering seafood by sea shore, and are famous attractions for tourist.
Secretary of Environment, in a written reply, stated that for the last 3 years, none of Environmental Protection Department (EPD), Drainage Services Department (DSD), and Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD), have received a single complaint on this issue.
EPD has been keeping close eyes on Cheung Chau and Lei Yue Mun seafront restaurants on potential polluted discharge into storm water drains.
Frequent check on grease trap and septic tank are carried out by EPD and FEHD.
DSD has also been paying close attention to contaminated sediment at public storm water drains, and desilting was carried out to prevent their discharge into water front.
He went on to say monitoring results showed that water quality of Cheung Chau Typhoon Shelter was good over the past 3 years (2009-2011).
