Declared Monuments in Hong Kong - New Territories

Shing Mun Reservoir
Commenced in 1923, the construction of Shing Mun Reservoir took 14 years to complete. The massive scale of the project meant that water could be supplied to cater to the needs of the residents of Kowloon Peninsula, but also to relieve the pressure on demand on densely populated Hong Kong Island via the cross-harbour mains, and this made it the largest reservoir of the pre-war period to provide water for both sides of the harbour.

The memorial stones at Shing Mun Reservoir and Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir are the only two memorial stones that were erected to mark the completion of the two largest reservoirs in the New Territories and on Hong Kong Island respectively built before the Second World War.

Memorial Stone of Shing Mun Reservoir was declared a monument in 2009.
