一起監測蒲台島的土地勘測工程



一起監測蒲台島的土地勘測工程

今年九月尾,香港觀鳥會收到水務署通知,為盡快處理村民的供水問題,水務署將會在十月中旬至十二月尾在蒲台進行土地勘測工程,研究蒲台的地下水資源是否足以供應村民的需要。由於蒲台屬生態敏感地,而擬定的土地勘測位置亦十分接近遷徙雀鳥依賴的成熟樹木,以及瀕危盧文氏樹蛙的棲息地,我們立即去信要求水務署延遲到十二月方可開展工程,以免對這些重要物種及其棲息地造成干擾。昨天我們再收到水務署回覆,指有關工程將安排在十一月中旬開始,並預計在明年一月或之前完工。

我們呼籲大家一同監測是次土地勘測工程,而該工程範圍﹝參照上圖﹞是不會觸及一些成熟樹木。但若果在工程期間,你發現在工程範圍外出現可疑的生態破壞行為,如砍樹、鏟除植被、在有植被地方棄置工程廢料,歡迎立即將相片、日期、時間、地點和你的觀察,留言/電郵(wsuetmei@hkbws.org.hk)給我們。

Let’s monitor the ground investigation works on Po Toi together

In late September this year, Water Supplies Department (WSD) notified the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society that ground investigation (GI) works would be scheduled in mid-October and ended in late December this year on Po Toi in order to handle the water supply issues for villagers as soon as possible. Given that Po Toi is an ecologically sensitive area, while the proposed locations for GI works are very close to the mature trees that are important for migratory birds to forage and roost, and are also close to areas with records of the globally endangered Romer’s Tree Frog, we therefore immediately wrote to WSD to request postponing the GI works to commence in December, so as to avoid unnecessary disturbance to the species of conservation concern and their habitats. We received a reply from WSD yesterday, stating that the GI works would start in mid-November and will probably be completed in or before January 2021.

We would like to invite you to monitor this GI works with us together. The site area (refer to the above Figure) should not encroach into areas with mature trees. But if you discover any suspected eco-vandalism, such as tree felling, vegetation clearance, or improper disposal of construction waste in vegetated areas during the construction period, please leave a comment/email to us via wsuetmei@hkbws.org.hk with the photo(s), date, time, location and your observation.
