Singapore helps Malaysia with water
Singapore will supply around 22 million gallons of water per day to Malaysia’s Johor state, which introduced water rationing on 16 August because of the dry spell, announced Singapore's national water agency PUB.
Until now, Singapore has been providing 16 million gallons of drinkable water each day, but a new request for additional 5-6 million gallons arrived recently.
This temporary arrangement will not affect Singapore's water supply, PUB said. The state has been working on its independent water supply by introducing innovative water-management methods. Although Singapore imports water from Malaysia under the 1962 Water Agreement, it treats the water and then resells it.
