Sentosa Development Corporation
Singapore, an island city-state with over 5.6 million inhabitants residing on a small land area of about 710 km, has a water demand of about 430 million gallons a day. In order to meet its water management needs, Singapore has to develop innovative solutions to collect, treat, and reuse sewage and rainwater from all across the nation, including Singapore’s island resort, Sentosa.
Managed by Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC), Sentosa is home to an exciting array of themed attractions, lush rainforests, golden sandy beaches, luxury residences, and world-renowned golf courses. Collectively, this patch of paradise welcomed an impressive total of 19.1 million guests in 2017 and 2018.
Running a myriad of developments on a 500-hectare island presents many challenges, such as ensuring a steady supply of water and electricity, as well as an efficient wastewater management system. With a high volume of visitors, the island resort depends on a complex system of pumping stations to help remove sewage on demand.
