About WWSWaterways Watch Society (WWS) is a special, independent volunteer group, bringing people together to love our waters and to inspire stewardship for our environment.
WWS was officially registered as a not-for-profit society with 27 members in 1999; over the years the organisation has expanded to about 500 dedicated and passionate members, with ages ranging between 14 to 70 years, from diverse backgrounds (professionals, students, civil servants, housewives, and retirees) and with multi-racial representation. In 2013, WWS qualified to be an Institution of a Public Character (IPC), a prestigious status that only a few select charities hold, enabling their donors to claim tax relief. WWS started its initial work with boat patrols and has since expanded its activities to include public education at fairs, school programmes, and Clean and Green Week activities. It also routinely participates in World Water Day, World Environment Day, International Coastal Cleanups and the World Water Monitoring Day.
WWS is well-positioned to promote public awareness of conserving, valuing and enjoying Singapore’s water resources while encouraging good social behaviour, translating into reduced litter and pollution of our environment. The Public Utilities Board (PUB), National Environment Agency (NEA) and several other government agencies are key partners of WWS, a recipient of the President’s Environmental Award in 2006. In addition, our founder and then-Chairman Mr Eugene Heng received the same award in an individual capacity in 2014. WWS has also received other environmental awards, such as the PUB Watermark Honorary Award in 2007 and the NEA EcoFriend Award in the same year.
