newest desalination plant, the Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant, which commenced operations in June 2020, is Singapore’s first large-scale dual-mode desalination plant capable of treating both seawater and freshwater. The fifth desalination plant in Jurong Island will be completed this year to further strengthen Singapore’s water supply resilience.
Our approach to water management can be distilled into three key strategies: collect every drop of water; reuse water endlessly; and desalinate more seawater.
PUB also works with the community and reaches out to a wide group of stakeholders to improve their water consumption habits. We adopt a multi-pronged approach to this: pricing water to reflect its scarcity value; mandating water efficiency standards; and encouraging water conservation practices.
