Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES The water resources of Singapore are especially precious given the small amount of land and territory in Singapore’s geography, while having a large urban population in the city-state. Without natural freshwater lakes, Singapore relies on four water sources: -Rainfall, collected in reservoirs or water catchment areas (about 20 per cent of supply in 2010); -Imported water from Malaysia (about 40 per cent of supply); -Reclaimed water (producing NEWater – 30 per cent of supply); -Seawater desalination (10 per cent of supply). This "four tap" strategy aims to reduce reliance on supply from Malaysia by increasing the volume supplied from the three other sources, or "national taps". Two-thirds of the country’s surface area is classified as partly protected catchment areas, with certain restrictions on land use, so that the rainwater can be collected and used as drinking water. As of 2010, the water supply system included 19 raw water reservoirs, nine treatment works and 17 service reservoirs for treated water. The largest reservoir, the Marina Bay reservoir which was inaugurated in 2008, is in the estuary of a river that has been closed off by a barrage to keep the seawater out. Two similar barrages are due to be completed in 2011 and will form the Punggol Reservoir and the Serangoon Reservoir
