PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, is a statutory board under the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources. It manages Singapore’s water supply, water catchment and used water in an integrated way. 

PUB has ensured a diversified and sustainable supply of water for Singapore with the Four National Taps (local catchment water, imported water, NEWater, desalinated water). 

PUB calls on everyone to play a part in conserving water, in keeping our waterways clean, and in caring for Singapore’s precious water resources. If we all do our little bit, there will be enough water for all our needs – for commerce and industry, for living, for life.
