A Singapore success story and the pillar of Singapore’s water sustainability,NEWater is high-grade reclaimed water. It is produced from treated used water that is further purified using advanced membrane technologies and ultra-violet disinfection, making it ultra-clean and safe to drink.
Developed by PUB after three decades, NEWater has passed more than 130,000 scientific tests and surpasses World Health Organisation requirements, a testimony of its high quality and reliability.
NEWater is proof that using today’s water treatment technologies, water of any quality can be treated into drinking water. It has put Singapore on the world map for innovative water management, including winning for PUB the Stockholm Industry Water Award in 2007.
The first NEWater plants were opened in Bedok and Kranji in 2003. The latest and largest NEWater plant at Changi with a capacity of 50mgd was opened in May 2010. Currently, NEWater meets up to 30% of the nation’s current water needs. By 2060, we plan to triple the current NEWater capacity so that NEWater can meet up to 55% of our future water demand.
