PUB: Pandan-smelling water from Malaysia ‘isolated’, local water production ramped up to meet demand – Malaysia

SINGAPORE – Singapore has ramped up local production of water to meet demand after some water from Malaysia had to be “isolated” following reports from some households here about an unusual scent of pandan in boiled tap water.

The cause of the scent is an organic compound known as tetrahydrofuran (THF), which is commonly used as a solvent in industries.

National water agency PUB said its investigations have traced the source of the issue to water imported from Malaysia.

Wind powered water desalination in coastal Vietnam – Vietnam

Climate change is happening and it is wreaking havoc by increasing temperatures, leading to salinity intrusion and floods. According to a report of Belgium’s Asian Infrastructure Engineering and Investment Company (AIEI), the total damage from salinity intrusion during the dry season and flood during the rainy season are estimated to reach 30 per cent of the total output of rice, vegetables, fruits, trees, and shrimp in 2050, equivalent to around VND3.6-12 trillion ($156.5-521.7 million).

Water issue still rankles Dr M, but agreement is binding, say experts.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s latest remarks on the water issue shows that the matter which was a source of conflict between Singapore and Malaysia during his first stint as Malaysia’s prime minister continues to be foremost on his mind, most experts who spoke to TODAY said.

However, Bilahari Kausikan, Singapore’s former Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs, said that the latest comments from the political veteran could be a “diversionary tactic” to make the Singapore government look unreasonable, in the hope that this will help Malaysia’s position should it ask for a waiver or reduction of the compensation owed to […]
