Inside NEWater Visitor Centre

Cool Insider recently visited the NEWater Visitor Centre with his family. Read his photo essay here. NEWater is Singapore's attempt at treating sewage water by purifying it using dual-membrane (via microfiltration and reverse osmosis) and ultraviolet technologies, in addition to conventional water treatment processes. I have yet to drink a bottle of NEWater but Cool Insider thinks that although it is not quite Perrier, it does taste pretty good especially on a hot day.

I had a bottle a long time ago, when my fiance gave me one - she was too chicken to try one herself. ;) Tasted just like regular water, and didn't give me any health problems.

Besides, all water is fish piss to begin with, so who cares? ;)

Thanks for highlighting this story. Newater is actually even purer than water from the reservoir and this is why it can be used for wafer fabrication plants and other clean room environments. They mix it with reservoir water before it goes into our taps.
