In the 1960s, Hong Kong experienced severe water rationing. In 1967, taps were turned on once in every 4 days for only 4 hours!

I think that the shortage was in 1963, I was in the army (1961-1964) working on Stonecutters Island and living on Boundary St. My wife had one son born 1961  and twins born 1963 Mt Kellet and Bowen Road Military hospitals. I enjoyed my stay apart from typhoon Wanda when I was stuck on Stonecutters for 3 days!
