In reflection of World Water Day, celebrated March 22, CH2M’s Subbu Kanakasabapthy, regional managing director for Asia Pacific shares how Singapore reuses its water in a video interview with CNBC Asia.
PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, has long been a leader in water innovation, becoming a hub for mutually beneficial technology collaborations and exchanges as it shores up its own water security. Singapore overcame common challenges associated with water reuse projects, and developed NEWater, Singapore’s own brand of high-grade reclaimed wastewater. By pioneering a hands-on transparent approach to public outreach and promoting water supply solutions needed to address shortages of fresh water, Singapore received unprecedented public acceptance demonstrating how technology and public education can be successfully aligned.
