Making Every Drop Count

At independence in 1965, Singapore’s water sources included rainwater collected in three small reservoirs and imports from Malaysia. This was enough for two million people. Today, two thirds of the island does the job of catching every single drop of rain and waste water. this huge catchment area comprises 17 reservoirs and a maze of drains, canals and rivers. This, together with water treatment facilities such as NEWater, desalination and water reclamation plants, is part of the masterplan to ensure not a drop goes to waste.
