CPG Consultants was appointed by PUB, Singapore's national water agency, as the Watershed Manager for Singapore's Eastern Water Catchment in its "Active, Beautiful and Clean Waters Programme" (ABC Waters Programme).
We worked closely with PUB to masterplan and redevelop the environmental aspects of the various water bodies in eastern Singapore. The existing conditions of the waterways were reviewed and plans and strategies were developed to maintain, improve or further enhance the quality of the waterways based on Active, Beautiful and Clean criteria. Water Sensitive Urban Design methods were investigated as alternative drainage solutions and some 50 potential projects were identified.
The area was analysed in terms of its geographical aspects, water, nature, urban planning, ecology and historical and cultural values. This provided a complete picture of the existing hydrological and urban planning conditions, which formed the foundation for future proposals. Projects such as the Lorong Halus Wetland and the Lower Seletar Family Bay have been completed.
