5 Historic Structures of Kowloon Reservoir

The construction of Shing Mun Reservoir commenced in 1923 and took 14 years to complete. The enormous size of the project not only brought water to cater for the needs of people in Kowloon Peninsula, but also helped to relieve pressure on water demand in the densely populated Hong Kong Island via the cross-harbour mains, making it the largest and major reservoir in the pre-war period to supply water for both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.
