What is NEWater 

NEWater is high-grade reclaimed water produced from treated used water that is purified further using advanced membrane technologies, making the water ultra-clean and safe to drink.
NEWater has passed more than 65,000 scientific tests and surpasses World Health Organisation requirements. (PUB, 17 January 2012)

People’s perception towards NEWater

There is actually a survey done after newater was launched. That survey showed a very high level of acceptance. More than 90% of the people polled actually said that they have no problem with newater. (Radio Feature, unknown date)

There was a strong acceptance of NEWater by the public and 60,000 Singaporeans toasted to NEWater at 2002 National Day Parade. An independent survey by Forbes Research at the end of 2002 confirmed the success of the programme. There was a 98% acceptance rate, with 82% of respondents indicating that they would drink NEWater directly and another 16% would drink it mixed with reservoir water. (Madhavan, unknown date)
