Environmental considerations should be carefully integrated into the design of
various components for a polder and floodwater pumping scheme. The pump motors and the
standby generator are the major noise sources of a floodwater pumping scheme. Acoustic
linings and other noise reduction facilities can be installed to reduce the noise level. Smoke
emitted from diesel generator should be properly catered for to reduce air pollution. In view
of the rising ecological concern, more environmental friendly design, such as wet pond,
unlined pond and channel bottom, grassed slopes, etc. should be adopted, especially when
wetland compensation is required.
