5. Conclusion

According to PHILOMIN & GRUDGINGS (2014) the recent dry spell in March has forced Singaporeans into thinking deeper into water issues. What would we depend when Singapore is faced with weather problems. Having four taps, we can easily turn one on and switch off the other. For example, during the dry spell, catchment water was obviously no longer in much use. Desalinated water and Imported water’s relevance decreased as well, having been affected by the hot weather too. According to Singapore water management (2009) NEWater comes into the most use at this point as it is affected least by the spell. Likewise, in the case of heavy rains, catchments will be filled with abundant water and more seawater can be collected. According to Tan (2012) NEWater use could be decreased or entirely turned off, thus, saving money. Using this method, we could easily adjust our water income depending on Singapore’s current situation, mainly weather. According to "Reclaimed water" (2013) this would help us majorly to save money on equipment and processes when abundant water is available from another tap.

Citizens should also start putting aside their ‘criticism’ or ‘ego’ to accept NEWater and desalinated water further as these taps will play a big part in meeting water demands in 2061. Posters or advertisements could be created to promote these taps and convince people that it is not unhealthy.
