Reflection of the visit to Singapore's NEWater Plants

Today, on the 23rd of March 2010, my fellow classmates and I visited the NEWater plant in Singapore. There, we watched a few documentaries about Singapore's dwindling water supply. With Singapore's increasing population, the usage of water used increases. Thus, in order for Singapore to sustain her water supply in the long run, Singapore needed other alternative water sources.....and then came NEWater! We were there how it was made. We learnt that the process to make NEWater was through a few processes:

1) Ultrafiltration / Microfiltration

2) Reverse Osmosis

3) Ultraviolet Disinfection
