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.

SAF is set at $3 per sanitary appliance for all users. Domestic and non-domestic users are charged WBF of 30c/m3 and 60c/m3, respectively.

What measures have been put in place to control air pollution from industries?
NEA evaluates the hazard and pollution impact of proposed industries to ensure that they do not pose unmanageable pollution, health and safety hazards. An industry is allowed to be set up only if it is sited in an appropriate industrial estate and can comply with pollution control requirements. NEA also checks the designs of industrial plants and pollution control equipment at the building plan stage for compliance with pollution control requirements.
In Jan 97, a scheme was introduced to require industries to conduct source emission tests. This is to ensure that industries monitor their exhaust emissions regularly and take remedial measures where necessary to comply with the air emission standards.
NEA also conducts regular inspections of industries to ensure that pollution control equipment is maintained and operated properly. It also conducts source tests on gaseous emissions, fuel analyses and smoke observations of chimneys.
