It can be concluded that the non-dredge reclamation method will bring less environmental impacts and therefore it is a better choice for reclamation.As the dredging process in reclamation is the fundamental cause for the environmental impacts mentioned above, the non-dredged reclamation method is advocated for the future reclamation projects.In addition to reclamation, development of underground space should be considered which can act as an alternative to increase land supply and reserve our valuable harbour.Though reclamation can provide for the requirements of the economic development, the conventional reclamation method causes water pollution, air pollution and adversely affects the marine ecosystem, which is not an ideal act for the...

Also known as water reclamation, water recycling is the process of extracting previously used water and treating it for reuse.It does not directly re-enter the water streams, but instead is treated and then redistributed straight back into the pipes to be reused.Reclaimed water is cleaned and redistributed for land irrigation, to recharge ground water, for industrial applications (cooling the water for power plants and oil refineries), for toilet water, to irrigate golf courses and to create artificial snow.The water also prevents further extraction of natural water from the environment.By reusing water, the overall amount of discharged water waste is decreased.

Governments around the world have become aware that fast solutions to waste management that relies on landfills and incineration (burning of waste) cannot offer a sustainable solution in a world with growing population.Rather than throwing away leaves and other household organic matter if you use them as compost, soil is replenished thereby reducing cost of land reclamation.Solid waste landfills must be designed to protect the environment from contaminants which may be present in the solid waste stream.Since human cities began to be more rigorous, solid waste management became a serious matter and for a reason, some industrialized nations today, solid waste management is a multimillion dollar business.Waste problem being one of the forem...
