Hung Hom service reservoir [c.1895- ]

Current condition: 
Unknown
Date Place completed: 
c.1895-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

The 1894 Public Works Report states: "The service reservoirs at Yaumati and Hunghom have been completed."

The 1896 Kowloon map locates this reservoir (with a capacity of ?92,850 gallons) approximately where the Ho Man Tin MTR station now stands. It is also shown on later maps, including the 1956 Kowloon map. 

Whether the reservoir still exists is unclear, although it may be one of the five service reservoirs listed for Ho Man Tin on the WSD website: https://www.wsd.gov.hk/filemanager/common/sr_roof_use/List_of_SR_under_1...
