PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, held a groundbreaking ceremony for the enhanced conveyance system of the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS) Phase 2 to mark the start of construction works.
A super highway for used water management, the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS) was conceived in the 1990s as a long-term solution for Singapore’s used water collection, treatment, reclamation and disposal needs.
The deep tunnels in Phase 2 will connect to the existing deep tunnels in Phase 1 serving the eastern part of Singapore and the public sewer network to create one seamless integrated system. The whole of Singapore will be served by the DTSS when Phase 2 is complete by 2025. Used water will be conveyed from the DTSS via gravity to three centralised water reclamation plants for treatment, before it undergoes further purification to produce NEWater, or discharged into the sea.

Hafudog's first shop opens its doors in the hustling and bustling streets of Robinson Road serving up artisanal hot dogs, the fusion way.
