Cheung Chau Works Begin
With immediate effect and for a period of approximately 12 months, marine works involving dumping and trimming operations, hydrographic survey and water quality monitoring will be carried out at the dumping ground to the south of Cheung Chau, reported today the Marine Department of Hong Kong.
The works will be carried out by a flotilla of vessels including hopper barges, grab dredgers and derrick lighters. Some tugs and work boats will provide assistance.
The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.
A working area of approximately 50 meters will be established around each working vessel. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the working vessels.
