There are 20 successful ABC Waters projects around the island, and four more to be completed in the next 2 years. In the next 10 to 15 years, over 100 ABC Waters proposals have been identified for implementation. These are guided by an island-wide ABC Waters Master Plan unveiled in 2007.
The ABC Waters Programme aims to achieve the following objectives:
To develop the water bodies beyond their functional use as resources for water collection, storage and drainage into vibrant, clean and aesthetically pleasing lifestyle attractions where recreational and communal bonding activities can take place;
To tap ideas, expertise and resources from the People-Public-Private (3P) in developing and managing the catchments and water bodies as new community spaces, while continuing to safeguard the water quality and safety to the community;
To act as an umbrella programme for integrating and holistically managing all initiatives involving catchments and water bodies; and
To get community closer to the water and instill stewardship.
