On a very hazy evening, yesterday we checked out Pasir Ris because we heard there were signs of algae in the water in the area.
After you flush your poop, it and industrial wastes, are processed with the best technology available. Whatever can't be reclaimed is discharged into the sea surrounding Singapore through an outfall.
A new outfall (Singapore's third one) is planned by PUB at Tuas View, south of Tuas Power and an EIA study has been carried out to determine the potential environmental impact of the plant’s outfall discharge. The EIA is now available for public viewing.
|Tuas will be the third outfall.|
The other two are at Changi and Kranji,
