PUB's annual water conservation campaign returns this March with month-long activities, programmes, and deals in celebration of Singapore World Water Day.

Every year, PUB commemorates World Water Day (22 March) by rallying the community to support the water cause by using water wisely and responsibly. With rising water demand and the adverse impact of climate change on our water sources, it is now more important than ever to produce more with less.

This year’s campaign rallies the public to play their part in making every drop count. The community and businesses do their part to promote the water messages through a host of fun activities and deals across Singapore. 

Here is a list of some of the family-friendly activities happening this water month that you can look forward to.
