Sponsored by

SINGAPORE, July 26, 2010 -- Black & Veatch has completed western Singapore's first Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) project at Pandan Reservoir, Singapore. It was opened to the public by S. Iswaran, Senior Minister of State for Trade & Industry and Education on July 25, as part of the Ayer Rajah - West Coast Family Carnival community event.

National water agency PUB launched the ABC Waters program in April 2006 to transform Singapore into a city of gardens and water by turning a vast network of drains, canals and reservoirs into beautiful streams, rivers and lakes. This encourages Singaporeans to get closer to water and cherish their precious resource. Under the program, nine projects are currently underway, with seven scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

Black & Veatch is the Watershed Manager for the Western Catchment of Singapore. The Pandan Reservoir ABC Waters project was one of three projects being implemented by Black & Veatch following its development of the ABC Waters Master Plan for the area. A key feature of the project was the new Amenities Centre for water sports, which will be home to three National Sport Associations in Singapore: Singapore Canoe Federation, Singapore Sailing Federation (in conjunction with the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club and Singapore Rowing Association). Pandan Reservoir boasts other leisure amenities, such as the floating Fishing and Viewing Deck, as well as the Radio Control Sailing and Electric Boating Deck.
