  • New tests ordered on Disney fireworks - The Standard 7/27/05

    New tests ordered on Disney fireworks
    Hong Kong Disneyland faces one last environmental challenge before Mickey, Goofy and Donald can welcome the SAR and China to the Magic Kingdom in a burst of pyrotechnics September 12.

    The Environment Protection Department said Wednesday it has ordered Disney to undertake an additional monitoring program in August, following criticism over flaws in its fireworks trial in May.

    Disneyland's plans to stage pyrotechnic shows each night in the skies above Penny's Bay have raised concerns among residents at Discovery Bay and Peng Chau.

    In a report submitted to the Advisory Council on the Environment in 2000, Disney said fireworks would not cause any significant environmental impact as confirmed by a trial test it conducted in Orlando that year.

    But the EPD asked the theme park to carry out tests on-site.

    Disney held trial firework displays May 6 and 7 at the park's Penny's Bay location on Lantau, during which five sampling locations were set up to monitor air quality with respect to respirable suspended particulates, metals and other harmful chemicals, including dioxins and sulfates.

    The locations included three areas within the theme park and two ``off-site'' areas on residential rooftops in neighboring Peng Chau and Discovery Bay, both 2.7 kilometers from the fireworks.
