Drainage

Overview

Singapore uses two separate systems to collect rainwater and used water. With two-thirds of Singapore as water catchment, rainwater that falls in these areas is collected through an extensive network of drains, canals, rivers, stormwater collection ponds and reservoirs before it is treated for drinking water supply. This makes Singapore one of the few countries in the world to harvest urban stormwater on a large-scale for its water supply.
