Flood control aspect of Singapore’s Urban Management High rainfall and dense urbanization in 1970s and 1980s Singapore led to frequent urban flooding Exacerbated by high tides (3+m tide range) and low lying coastal areas Singapore has had an ongoing effort since the later 1960s to build an effective storm drainage network This is fully integrated with the development of “new towns” which today house much of the population This has been very successful – with flood prone areas reduced to less than 100 hectares (and with limited flood depths)

High rainfall and dense urbanization in 1970s and 1980s Singapore led to frequent urban flooding

Exacerbated by high tides (3+m tide range) and low lying coastal areas

Singapore has had an ongoing effort since the later 1960s to build an effective storm drainage network

This is fully integrated with the development of “new towns” which today house much of the population

This has been very successful – with flood prone areas reduced to less than 100 hectares (and with limited flood depths)

Flood Prone Areas

Strategies to prevent and alleviate floods Drainage master planning and development control maintain and update the drainage master plans in tandem with land developments ensure that proper and adequate drainage facilities are provided to serve new developments (ii) Drainage improvement projects ensure that drains and canals are upgraded in time to serve new developments remove constrictions in old drains/canals (iii) Maintenance & enforcement programme

Drainage master planning and development control

maintain and update the drainage master plans in tandem with land developments

ensure that proper and adequate drainage facilities are provided to serve new developments

(ii) Drainage improvement projects

ensure that drains and canals are upgraded in time to serve new developments

remove constrictions in old drains/canals

(iii) Maintenance & enforcement programme

Canal Outlet drain Closed roadside drain Open roadside drain River Types of drains/canals 820 ha safeguarded for drains and canals (excludes roadside drains within road reserves)

Sengkang Floating Island

Sengkang Floating Island Artist’s Impressions Today A floating boardwalk camouflaged by plants connects the island and the fruit park A fixed bridge connecting floating island to the Anchorvale CC The floating island helps to filter water while providing an interesting transition from the community club to the fruit park

Sengkang Floating Island Artist’s Impression Fruit-themed pavilion creates a thematic link to the fruit park
