Abstract:

The city state of Singapore faces unique challenges in meeting its water supply needs. It has implemented a multi-pronged approach to tap the available raw water sources. These include importing water from Malaysia, capturing local runoff in Singapore, aggressive use of NEWater (treated “used water” effluent), and desalination. This presentation will deal with the capture or runoff from core urban areas and its use as a viable water source.
