Maintenance of ABC Waters Design Features

INTRODUCTION

The Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme is a long-term strategic initiative by PUB to bring people closer to water so that they appreciate and take ownership of our waterways. In tandem with building design features across the catchment, it is necessary to at the same time build industry capability to maintain these features properly after they are constructed, so as to sustain their functions to detain and cleanse the runoff as well as enhance the environment. This maintenance training workshop, a collaboration between CUGE and Singapore Water Academy (SgWA), is designed for landscape contractors, supervisors as well as facility managers to build their capacity in the maintenance of ABC Waters design features.
