The assessment in the EIA Report for
the Project concluded that no areas of archaeological interest were identified
during construction and operation phases of the Project. As such monitoring and audit for archaeology
required. As the majority of heritage resources
are located at a sufficient distance from the proposed works at Pui O, no adverse impacts associated with the
construction works would be expected.
However, mitigation measures are proposed
around the shrine
at Pui O Lo Wai Tsuen during demolition and reprovisioning works for the Pui O
Raw Water Pumping Station. Site audit during the construction phase is required to ensure the
recommended mitigation measures are properly implemented.
Mitigation measures recommended for
the construction phase of the Project are
summarized below. The
implementation schedule of the recommended mitigation measures is presented in
Built Heritage and Cultural
and Historical Landscape Features
measures in the form of a temporary fenced off buffer zone in proximity to a shrine at Pui O Lo
Wai Tsuen with allowance for public access should be provided as far as
practicable. In case of site
constraint, the existing perimeter fence at Pui O Raw
Water Pumping Station could be incorporated to protect the shrine and should
form the limit of the buffer zone. Site audit is recommended to
monitor whether the mitigation measures are implemented.
