|Some Frequently Asked Questions
Before we embark you on the journey of the creation of NEWater and how it came about, we would like to answer some frequently asked questions to help you get started.
Where did the water of NEWater originally come from?
The water comes mainly from the toilets and drains.
Oh dear! Isn't that disgusting? Are you sure it's drinkable?
You bet the thought of it is disgusting. However if you would allow us to bring you through the processes of how the water is purified, all your fears will disappear.
Is NEWater very expensive?
The cost of NEWater as compared to obtaining drinkable water from desalination is much cheaper. In fact, bottles of NEWater have always been sponsored for many events. As to date, the Public Utilities of Singapore has not raised the charges for water consumption due to the introduction of NEWater.
Hmmm... I'm still not convinced....
