S’pore will not renew one water agreement with M’sia which expires next year

SINGAPORE: Singapore will not need to renew one water agreement with Malaysia which expires next year.

That’s because Singapore has ramped up with local water supply with new reservoirs, NEWater and desalinated water.

Environment and Water Resources Minister Yaacob Ibrahim said Singapore will build a second desalination plant over the next few years to ensure reliability in water supply.

Environment & Water Resources Minister, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, said: “As the production of NEWater and desalinated water are independent of rainfall, they can be used to supplement water stocks in an extended dry spell like the one experienced in February this year, which was the driest February on record.” — CNA/vm


YAY! Another step to self-sufficient goes Singapore! I remembered vividly of discussing this topic with Mrs Lee sometime last year during Humanities class about Singapore’s water agreement with Malaysia and all that. I’m happy that things turn out so much better for Singapore!
