With the 4 National Taps in place, will Government consider removing or reducing the Water Conservation Tax (WCT) and tariff on the household utilities bill?
Although we have diversified our water supply through the 4 National Taps, our water resources are not unlimited and additional sources of water come at a higher incremental cost.
Hence, in addition to recovering the costs of producing and supplying water, the WCT remains important in encouraging prudent use of water. We need to continue to reinforce the message that water is strategic and precious to us, and we will need to conserve it and use it wisely.
What are PUB's water and used water tariffs and charges?
PUB's water tariffs and fees are summarized in the following table.

Water Borne Fee and Sanitary Appliance Fee

What are the benefits of the ABC Waters programme?
The ABC Waters Programme is part of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's vision to remake Singapore into a vibrant and dynamic home and a "City of Gardens and Water". The remaking of our catchments and waterways will create new opportunities for Singaporeans to mingle and interact and, at the same time, be closer to water and nature.
The Programme aims to create a seamless network of blue and green, and integrate this with adjacent land developments. Private developers will also be encouraged to convert the spaces around the waterways into recreational and commercial areas with amenities. This will optimise our land use, by encouraging new lifestyle activities and attractions to flourish in the waters and surrounding land.
Beyond aesthetics, the Programme will create opportunities for the 3P sectors to come forward and participate in taking ownership of the facilities and our waters and generate interest among school students in our environment etc.. Through these, we hope that the public, private and people will develop a relationship with water and sense of shared ownership towards our water resources.
