Why can’t we introduce NEWater directly into our taps?
What are the main uses of NEWater?
1. Non-Potable Use As it is ultra-clean, NEWater is used mainly for industrial and air-con cooling purposes at wafer fabrication plants, industrial estates and commercial buildings. The biggest users of NEWater are wafer fabrication plants, which require water quality that is even more stringent than water for drinking. 2. Indirect Potable Use
NEWater is also added to our reservoirs to blend with the raw water collected at the reservoirs. The raw water from the
reservoir is then treated at the waterworks before it is being supplied to consumers as tap water. For more information, you may wish to visit the PUB's website here.
