AbstractThe development of Hong Kong has been closely linked to the establishment and expansion of water supply. However, it has been a constant challenge to provide sufficient water for the population. Importation of water, greatly expanded reservoir storage and conservation have helped improve supply. The drought of 1963 is used to illustrate the difficulties posed by shortage of water, whilst the role of water in sovereignty, public health and recreation/conservation is illustrated.
