Singapore has two major limitations -- land and clean water. The tour at this visitor centre shows how Singaopre is tackling the problem of having enough clean water for a growing population.
The tour is designed for school groups, but as an adult I actually found it quite interesting. You'll learn about the four "taps" of water (rain, water imports from Malaysia, desalination, recycling) and how recycled NEWater is produced.
Rather than trying to encourage citizens to drink recycled water, it is used for industry and for topping-up reservoirs. The tour explains how water is recycled and you'll see some of the equipment being used. There are also interactive displays to keep children attentive.
The visitor centre is located close to the airport and is a fair walk from the closest MTR (train), so a taxi is recommended.
We found the free tour quite worthwhile, as a way of learning more about Singapore's particular situation in the world.
