Paper I.2

Proposal For A Dual-Mode Rain Water Cistern System In Industrial Areas Of Two Hectare Lots

Dr Adhityan Appan
Nanyang Technological Institute Singapore:


In 1968, the Jurong Town Corporation was established with a view to develop a predominantly industrial zone in the south-western part of Singapore. Land-lots of various sizes were allocated to industries according to their needs and, to date, only potable water is being supplied to most of the. industries. The quantity of water used in each of these industries: is as varied as the quality required for different purposes. It is approximated that that the average land area occupied by the larger industries is about two hectares. In this study, the potential volume of water that can be tapped independently from such small areas is studied taking into consideration the stochastic pattern of rainfall, the varying demand and quality of the rainwater. Also a simple dual-mode system that is economically viable is proposed wherein the perennial supply of water is guaranteed whether or not stored rainwater is available.
