About WWS

Waterways Watch Society (WWS) is an environmental non-profit organization that was formed in 1998 with a mission to bring people together to protect our waterways.

WWS is a firm advocate of public education to promote individual responsibility and shared ownership of our water resources and environment. For this, we have established various programmes and strongly believe in forming sustainable partnerships with passionate individuals, schools, community groups, companies and government agencies.

WWS was presented with the inaugural Presidential Environment Award in 2006 and the Honorary Watermark Award from PUB in 2007. WWS is also represented in the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources Water Network Committee and has been recognized as an Institute of Public Character (IPC).
