Come visit my world to embark on a trail that takes you on a learning journey through Singapore’s Water Story. Through various stops, this guided trail leads you back in time to discover how in the face of water scarcity, Singapore has come up with creative ways of developing and diversifying its water resources over the past 50 years. Today, a sustainable flow of water is supplied by the island’s water catchment areas, NEWater facilities, water desalination plants and water imported from Malaysia. Known as the Four National Taps, these four water resources collectively provide clean and safe-drinking water to Singapore’s 5.6 million people and industries. See how these Four National Taps work by interacting with my world too! Trigger rainfall and watch the reservoir fill up, or play a mini game to see how NEWater cleans our water using membranes! Water is a precious resource which none of us can live without. To add, processing drinkable water with existing technologies requires high amounts of fuel resources which can run out if over consumed, saving water is therefore protecting the environment. You can play your part to conserve water by adopting water-saving habits daily!
