Partnership with Waterways Watch Society

Keen to do your part for the environment but don’t know where to start or what to do?

This year, Earthlink NTU will be collaborating with WaterWays Watch Society for joint boat and bicycle patrols along the Marina Reservoir. (Areas covered include Kallang Basin, Marina Bay and Singapore River.)

Waterways Watch Society (WWS) is a non-governmental organization that works closely and reports any pollution in the Marina Reservoir to the relevant authorities like PUB, NEA, Nparks, URA and LTA for necessary action.

With the completion of the marina barrage, the 15th reservoir - Marina Resevoir will have the largest and most urbanized catchment area at 10,000 hectares or one-sixth of size of Singapore. Major canals and waterways within the catchment area will eventually flow into the reservoir. This is unlike the other 14 reservoirs which are protected and not in an urban surrounding area. Hence, there is a strong need for us to play do our part to keep our environment clean.

Interested to be a Water Ranger? Sign up with us as a volunteer by sending us your name, email and contact number to
