With limited land to collect and store rainwater, Singapore faced drought, floods and water pollution in the early years of nation building. These challenges inspired Singapore to strategise and seek innovative ideas, develop capabilities and secure a sustainable supply of water. Today Singapore has a robust and diversified supply of water known as the 'Four National Taps'. Our water supply comprises (1) Water from Local Catchment, (2) Imported Water, (3) highly-purified reclaimed water known as NEWater, and (4) Desalinated Water. We have been enjoying good quality water for the last five decades and it is safe to drink from the tap. The tap water is well within the World Health Organization's drinking water guidelines and is suitable for drinking without further filtration.
