Singapore’s national water agency PUB plans to tighten regulations on used water discharge from industries, trade and businesses.

It will be amending the Sewerage and Drainage (Trade Effluent Regulations) to effect stricter penalties. The amendment will likely kick in next year.

If convicted, offenders will be fined $15,000, up from the current $5,000, or jailed up to three months, or both.

PUB says the quality of industrial used water discharged into public sewers needs to be regulated as these may contain hazardous chemicals.
