Characteristics:
Plover Cove Reservoir, located in Plover Cove Country Park, is the second largest reservoir in Hong Kong. It is also the world's first "reservoir in the sea". The massive construction work of the reservoir was a project that had never been attempted anywhere in the world. Engineers dammed the inlet, pumped out seawater and filled the inside with fresh water. Construction work commenced in 1960 and was completed in 1968. The reservoir provided a capacity of 170 million cu m. Work on raising the height of the dams began in 1970. Upon completion in 1973, the reservoir capacity was increased to 230 million cu m.

The approximately 2 km long dam of Plover Cove Reservoir was built with layers of sand gravel. The reservoir site was once famous for pearl production in ancient times, but later continuous pearling resulted in low productivity. It is now a natural fishpond with many species bred.

Facilities:
Spillways, network of underground tunnels, dams, etc
