'Venice of Punggol' opens

AsiaOne
Sunday, Oct 23, 2011 Housing estate Punggol saw a new addition to its facilities today when Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officially opened the Punggol Waterway.

Speaking at the opening, PM Lee said he was happy to witness the completion of the waterway, which some call 'Venice of Punggol'.

He recounted how it was a long journey to complete the waterway, after initial plans for Punggol 21 were affected by the Asian financial crisis.

However, the plans for the waterway were revisited and improved after the economy recovered.
PM Lee said in his speech that Punggol Waterway was a central feature of the Punggol 21 Plus plan to transform Punggol into the "Waterfront Town of the 21st Century".

He also said there will be 23,000 families living in Punggol by the end of 2011, with a new commercial hub and town plaza by Punggol MRT by 2015.

The project cements Punggol's claims as Singapore's first 'eco-precinct', where every aspect, from building…

Singapore's first solar leasing project kicks off in Punggol

As published in CNA
15 Sep 2011

SINGAPORE: Forty-five HDB blocks in Punggol will be fitted with solar panels by the middle of next year, in Singapore's first solar leasing project.

The solar power generated panels will be used to power services in common areas such as lift operations, corridor and staircase lightings, and water pumps.

This makes up 10 per cent of total block usuage.

Private company Sunseap Enterprises will finance the design, maintenance and installation of the two mega-watt peak solar system.

HDB will cover 30 per cent of the start up costs at S$3.28 million, while the remaining costs will be covered by Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council's monthly payment for solar power, over the next 20 years.

But this will be lower than what the council usually pays for electricity because the price of solar power is at a 1 per cent discount from Sunseap Enterprises.

"At the moment, solar power generation is still likely to be more expensive than generation of energy from …

Uncle Leong Seafood

First founded in a neighbourhood coffeeshop amidst the friendly Ang Mo Kio estate, the ever-popular Uncle Leong Seafood has now heightened into a full-fledged restaurant at Punggol End. Still keeping its modesty, Uncle Leong Seafood serves up the day's first dish as they do daily; at 4.30pm sharp and very delicious.

Uncle leong Seafood is the one of THE places to go for crab, based on the signature recipe that has drawn a keen following since the first public taste in 2002. Today, Uncle Leong Seafood welcomes a daily haul of customers comprising both locals and foreigners.

“Shimmering Sand Crab delight”, Uncle Leong’s wonderful signature dish, is a mouthful, but a tasty one! The dish is an orginal Uncle Leong recipe: larger than average crab drizzled with Uncle Leong's signature sauce and topped with a sprinkle of oat, a combination of flavours that complement the fresh flesh excellently. The aroma alone will leave you wanting more. Other must-try dishes are the “Crab Bee Hoo…

Punggol eco-town to test-bed energy solutions for public housing

Punggol ecotown to testbed energy solutions for public housing

SINGAPORE: One block of public housing in Singapore's Punggol eco-town will be a test-bed for environmentally-friendly energy solutions.

The project is a collaboration between Japanese electronics giant Panasonic and government agencies - the Housing and Development Board, the Economic Development Board and the Energy Market Authority.

It aims to get 10 households in the block of HDB flats to participate and may include more homes later.

An integrated energy system will help families reduce their carbon footprint and utilities bill.

Energy-producing solar panels will be fitted on the block of flats and these will power lifts and lighting during the day.

Excess electricity generated by the solar panels can be stored in batteries, which households can tap on for energy at night. This potentially means zero emissions being generated in powering an entire housing block.

SINGAPORE: Residents at Punggol North celebrated racial and religious harmony with a street parade at Punggol Field.

Part of the Punggol Field road was closed on Sunday as residents brought celebrations to the streets.

This annual street parade allows residents from different races to learn more about different cultures and beliefs.

This year, some 3,300 people came together to put up a mass Cha Cha dance item in attempt to break a Guinness World Record.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, who is the MP for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, outlined several upcoming developments in Punggol for the residents to enjoy - including Punggol Waterway and Punggol Promenade.

But he said beyond physical facilities, the most important thing is to build a community spirit and have the residents feel that Punggol is home.

Two new reservoirs help boost Singapore's water supply

AsiaOne
Sun, Jul 03, 2011

Two new reservoirs opened in northeast Singapore, giving Singapore a much-needed boost to water supply.  Punggol and Serangoon Reservoirs are the latest additions, bringing the total number of water catchment areas in Singapore to 17.
PUB announced today that they increase the water catchment areas from half to two-thirds of Singapore, together with the Marina Reservoir.

The milestone achievement was celebrated in a ceremony officiated by Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources.

Speaking at the ceremony, Dr Balakrishnan said that Singapore is "well on our way to self-sufficiency" with imported water from Johor, NEWater, and desalinated water providing Singapore with a sustainable water supply.

Created by the damming of Sungei Punggol and Sungei Serangoon, the Punggol and Serangoon Reservoirs will collect rainwater from estates and areas within Punggol and Sengkang, and parts of Hougang and Ang Mo Kio.

Mr Michael Palmer and Mr Charles Chong said they believe the presence of the opposition would inject some excitement.

Punggol Reservoir

As a small island that doesn't have natural aquifers and lakes and with little land to collect rainwater, Singapore needs to maximise whatever it can harvest.

Currently, Singapore uses two separate systems to collect rainwater and used water. Rainwater is collected through a comprehensive network of drains, canals, rivers and stormwater collection ponds before it is channelled to Singapore's 17 reservoirs for storage. This makes Singapore one of the few countries in the world to harvest urban stormwater on a large scale for its water supply.

The newest reservoirs are Punggol and Serangoon Reservoirs which are our 16th and 17th reservoirs. By 2011, the water catchment area has increased from half to two-thirds of Singapore’s land surface with the completion of the Marina, Punggol and Serangoon reservoirs.

With all the major estuaries already dammed to create reservoirs, PUB aims to harness water from the remaining streams and rivulets near the shoreline using technology that ca…
