Dear DB residents,

Re: No Excessive Levels of Lead Found in DB Water Samples

The news in the past two weeks has been dominated by reports that the potable water supply in several housing estates in Hong Kong has been found to contain excessive levels of the potentially harmful heavy metal lead.

Many DB residents are concerned whether Discovery Bay is also affected. Last week, I took water samples from different areas in DB and sent them to Hong Kong Productivity Council for testing. They included water samples from Peninsula, Beach and Greenvale villages. Another one was taken from the commercial area in the Plaza.

The first test results were released on 23 July 2015. I am pleased to inform you that no excessive levels of lead were detected in any of the samples.

Further samples have been taken from different residential areas and sent for laboratory testing.

I want to take this opportunity to thank those DB residents who helped me in taking the samples. Further results will be released as they become available.

Yours sincerely,

Amy Yung

Islands District Council Member (Discovery Bay)
