Watrways Issue

THE CHALLENGE

Watrways Challenge

KEEPING OUR RAINWATER CLEAN

While we have separate systems to collect rainwater and used water, it is still a challenge to keep the rainwater we collect clean.

The increasingly urbanised nature of our water catchment areas means that rainwater runoff is at increasing risk of being polluted by things such as oil and silt.

Urbanisation also makes our waterways and reservoirs more accessible, exposing them to inconsiderate actions such as littering.

Contamination makes it more costly to process and supply clean water to our taps.

OUR EFFORTS

Watrways Efforts

MAINTAINING GOOD WATER QUALITY

Our waterways are cleaned regularly. We use float booms and litter traps to prevent litter from entering our reservoirs. Beyond this, everyone has a part to play in keeping our waterways clean and free from pollutants.

WORKING CLOSELY WITH INDUSTRIES

PUB puts in place regulations for industry players to ensure that waste is properly disposed and substances such as silt and chemicals are not washed into waterways.

ABC WATERS PROGRAMME

Our waterways and reservoirs have been transformed under PUB’s Active, Beautiful, Clean (ABC) Waters Programme into recreational spaces which people can value and enjoy. Certain design features such as plants can also help to clean the rainwater in our waterways.
