The third desalination plant to be constructed in the Tuas area of Singapore, owned and operated by PUB, is expected to be completed and operational in 2017. The facility will add another 30 million gallons, or 136,000 cubic metres of water per day to the Singapore water supply. The facility extracts seawater, and removes salt and minerals to produce water suitable for human consumption or irrigation.
