S'pore will be water-independent before water agreement expires: Balakrishnan [News]

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.
