Water Management In Singapore

Summary- Singapore is scarce in resources like water. So PUB (Public Utilities Board) had made the NEWater program so dirty water can be used for daily life. They took 20 years to make the Marina Catchment, a huge reservoir. PUB's success in Singapore was due to no corruption , lots of education and promotion based on meritcoracy.With such a small country like Singapore being able to have such a good way of renewing compared to bigger countries with more government  means that those countries should wolk harder.Singapore has one of the best urban water managements.

Water in the current day and future

This article talks about how we use water in our daily lives and how we can save it for the future. An average person uses about 378.541 litres of water a day. Countries such as Utah use their water mainly for public supply and industrial work. Utah is only using a small percent of water per day compared to other countries. Water can't be gained, only reused, that is why it is very important to save water. In Today's modern world, the human population is using more water than the past. The population of humans is ever rising, but our water supply is not. We should start conserving water by taking small steps at a time. The world has to take precautions so as not to suffer in the near future. We should take action now, to prevent a bigger problem in the future.
