Reflection for ADMT Trip to NEWater Plant

1) What are the 3 key takeaways from today's visit?
i) NEWater has no minerals.
ii) The process of cleaning the water into NEWater requires 2 stages of using membrane technology and 1 stage of using Ultra-Violet Light.
iii)NEWater needs to mix with normal water before its flows through the pipes if not the concrete in the pipes will be corroded.

2) Name 2 concepts that you have learnt today?
i) I learnt how the water is cleaned in detail, before I briefly know what happens.
ii) I learnt about what happens to NEWater after the stage using Ultra-Violet Light

3) What is the 1 interesting thing that you have learnt today?
I learnt that NEWater would corrode the concrete in pipes if it does not mix with normal water to regain the minerals it should have.

4) What are the things that you can do to help with water conservation in Singapore?
I can save water so the water would last longer if we could not acquire more in an emergency.
