The tiny island nation of Singapore, despite minimal natural water sources, has become the worlds leader in water recycling. With the world experiencing global drought, rapid population growth, and widespread fresh water shortages, there is much to be learned from the Singapore Model.
Those were the conclusions of Circle of Blue spokesperson Brett Walton, in an interview on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show. Circle of Blue is a Traverse City, Michigan, based organization bringing together journalists, scientists and designers to compile and distribute information about global water resources. The organization was founded in 2002.
According to Walton, because of the Singapores farsighted water strategy, the nation is well on the way to achieving water independence for its five million inhabitants despite a land area of only 272 square miles and the worlds second densest population (after Monaco and just before Hong King).
