Asia's Leading Drainage Systems Summit Returns to Singapore!

Poor drainage systems with obsolete capacity and inappropriate wastewater, stormwater treatment techniques are undoubtedly major causes leading to alarmingly growing rates of urban water pollution, flashfloods, soil erosions and public health issues. Despite significant progress observed in the water resources management in recent years, the growing intensity of rainfalls, frequency of intense rains and tidal incursions due to climate changes are putting substantial pressure on the traditional drainage systems in most Asian countries with existing poor quality and under-maintained, outdated treatment technologies. Asia is also home to the fastest growing urban cities, whose land usage if not properly controlled could adversely affect stormwater discharge and lead to severe soil erosion.
