Category : news
|"Two more dams in the pipeline - PUB studies Punggol and Serangoon rivers." By Jose Raymond, Today, 02 Oct 2004: p. 2 [pdf]
Excerpts - "PUB has already begun an in-depth study into the damming up of two rivers - Sungei Punggol and Sungei Serangoon. Environmentalists revealed that plans are also underway to dam up three other rivers - Sungei Khatib Bongsu, Sungei Simpang Kiri and the Sungei Seletar."
"A PUB spokesman said: "Various studies are in progress and are expected to be completed in 2005. Under the scheme, Sungei Punggol and Sungei Serangoon are expected to be converted to reservoirs by 2009.""
"Mr Eric Low, the chief executive officer of the Marina Country Club and Resorts - the former Punggol Marina - dismissed suggestions that the area will become dead once the two rivers are dammed up."
