The health and well-being of Sailors, their families and civilians stationed in Singapore are the Command’s top priority. Ensuring the availability of high quality drinking water is an integral part of this effort.
Singapore Area Coordinator is the first overseas command in the Navy to receive a Full Certificate to Operate from the Navy’s Water Quality Oversight Council. This is part due to the hard work and effort by the departments and contractors involved in water quality and distribution system, but also due to the high quality of water produced and distributed by the Government of Singapore.
The Singapore Public Utilities Board (PUB) is the local agency responsible for providing drinking water to the country. The PUB provides advanced treatment processes and a thorough monitoring program to ensure high quality water is distributed throughout the island. Singapore has built a robust, diversified and sustainable water supply from four water sources known as the Four National Taps – Water from Local Catchment, Imported Water, Reclaimed water (known as NEWater) and Desalinated Water. In integrating the water system and maximizing the efficiency of each of the four taps, Singapore has overcome its lack of natural water resources to meet the needs of the growing nation.
The Navy's drinking water system at SAC complies with all applicable Federal, State, and local safe drinking water regulations, Executive Orders, and Navy Policy by performing water quality monitoring (including some or all of the following based on system type: bacteria, lead, copper, disinfection by-products, and other chemicals) and providing customers an annual Consumer Confidence Report as well as investigating and resolving customer complaints.
Other Navy policy requirements include Distribution System Sanitary Survey reviews and programs for cross-connection control, backflow prevention, operation and maintenance, and unidirectional flushing. All these programs are designed to ensure that safe drinking water is delivered to every consumer.
