Singapore to be water-independent well before expiry of water agreement with Malaysia
Environment and Water Resources Minister Vivian Balakrishnan has said Singapore will be water independent well before the expiry of the country's last water agreement with Malaysia.
Dr Balakrishnan said Singapore can continue to produce more than enough water for itself for the long term future.
The second desalination plant in Tuas will be completed in July, producing another 70 million gallons of water a day.
In the long run, desalination is expected to meet up to a quarter of Singapore's total water demand.
