Public Utilities Board


Public Utilities Board

The Public Utilities Board (Abbreviation: PUB; Chinese: 公用事业局; Malay: "Lembaga Kemudahan Awam") is a statutory board of the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources under the Government of Singapore.

PUB was set up to ensure an efficient, adequate and sustainable supply of water for Singapore. The PUB hopes to achieve its mission through its "Price-Minus" strategy where they aim to maintain high services but at the same time, keep the costs low.

In 2003, PUB introduced NEWater, to multiply Singapore's water supply.
