OUR HISTORY & ACHIEVEMENTS

Inspired by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s efforts to clean up the Singapore River and Kallang Basin in the 1970s, the initial focus of Waterways Watch Society’s environmental cause was to keep Singapore’s waterways clean and safe for all to enjoy by organising voluntary clean-up patrols on the weekends. Over the past two decades, our mission has broadened beyond our clean-up patrols to include providing environmental educational programmes to spread awareness on the importance of keeping our waterways clean and safe and rally individuals to do their part for our environment.
