Singapore supplies extra water to Johor
The PUB-operated reservoir improves the yield of water from the Johor River, which helps to meet half of Singapore’s water needs. The Republic draws up to 250mgd of raw water from the river, and supplies Johor with treated water in return.
The temporary increase, which is being supplied by the PUB-operated Johor River Waterworks, brings Singapore’s supply of treated water to its closest neighbour to 22mgd.
From last August to January this year, PUB supplied an additional 5mgd to 6mgd of potable water to Johor under an arrangement similar to the present one.

JOHOR BARU, April 14 — The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar today called on the state government to conduct a study and produce a long-term water management plan that would ensure continued water supply for future generations.
Sultan Ibrahim said each household should be encouraged to have a rainwater collection system for external use while the state government should control land-clearing activities in water catchment reserve areas to ensure good quality water supply.
“Of late, the public often complain about disruption of supply of clean water. Although we cannot control climate and weather changes, we can take proactive steps to tackle the problem of lack of water supply,” said Sultan Ibrahim.
He was speaking at the opening of the first meeting of the fourth session of the 13th Johor State Legislative Assembly at Bangunan Sultan Ibrahim here today.
Sultan Ibrahim said the people must appreciate water and avoid wastage, and clear water should not be used to water plants or clean vehicles excessively.
