The following measures are adopted by
Singapore in controlling water pollution:
smoking prohibition was last extended on 15 January 2013 to include any common
area of any residential premises or building (e.g. common corridor, void decks,
staircases); any covered or underground pedestrian walkway, whether permanent
or temporary; any pedestrian overhead bridge; any bus stop or bus shelter,
including any area within a radius of 5 metres from the outer edge of the
shelter; and hospital outdoor compounds.
A list of places where smoking is banned may be found at the National Environment Agency (NEA)’s website here.
The National Environment Agency (NEA) conducts weekly sampling of water quality from the seven
recreational beaches listed below:
All the popular recreational beaches monitored by NEA are
assessed to be suitable for primary contact activities as they are graded
“Good” or “Very Good”. These seven beaches continue to meet the WHO water
quality guidelines for recreational use. The results of the water quality for
recreational beaches are based on the weekly sampling results of water samples
over three years.
More information on the water quality of recreational beached
can be found here.
