Environment and Water Resources Minister Vivian Balakrishnan said Singapore will be water-independent well before the expiry of the country’s last water agreement with Malaysia.

Dr Balakrishnan said Singapore can continue to produce more than enough water for itself for the long-term future.

In the long run, desalination is expected to meet up to a quarter of Singapore’s total water demand.
