An idea of constructing a coastal fresh water pond system for reclaimed area is reported. This pond utilizes.. a dividing channel, initially designed to isolate the reclaimed l and from the nearby urban area, as the fresh water reservoir. The completed fresh water pond system is composed of (1) Linkage, conveyance and bypass (2) Monitoring & control, MACS and., (3) pond storage, CFPW systems. System design requirement for the pond and consideration are listed.

The MACS is planned to be fully automatic: and performed in both predictive and real-time modes. The linkage system uses two by-pass channels and retain most of the current environmental issues. The pond is designed to have overall storage of 21, x106 M3 and capable for industrial water supply of two months. The overall system is being evaluated in an experimental-station:
