FOREWORD
The Stormwater Drainage Manual was first published inOctober 1994. It aims at giving guidance and standards for the planning and management of stormwater drainage systems andfacilities commonly constructed in Hong Kong. To incorporatethe developments and changes in recent years, a Working Group,chaired by the Chief Engineer of our Drainage Projects Division,was formed in October 1998 to update the Manual. This newedition follows the original arrangement in the contents of theManual with some necessary changes made and new materialsadded, for example, on the subject of Polder and Floodwater Pumping Schemes. Equal emphasis has been put on theoperation and maintenance aspects which are essential to the proper functioning of the stormwater drainage systems.I would like to take this opportunity to thank allcolleagues who have contributed to the production of thisManual, including those participating in the Working Group andthe Subgroups.It is our wish that this document will provide guidanceon good engineering practice, however, its recommendations arenot intended to be exhaustive nor mandatory. I would expectthat from time to time experienced practitioners could adoptalternative methods to those recommended herein. Practitionersare welcome to comment at any time to the Drainage ServicesDepartment on the contents of this Manual, so thatimprovements can be made to future editions.( J COLLIER )Director of Drainage ServicesDecember 2000
