Service Reservoir Inspection and Cleaning
Water Quality Enhancement Programme [ Back to Main ]
I. Reservoir Inspection (RIP)
Water quality will be sampled using ‘depth-samplers’ at 3 different levels (top, middle, bottom) and subsequent cleaning of the reservoirs will be carried out if any water quality violations are detected. Under this programme all service reservoirs will be cleaned by open scour flushing / manually/ robotically and thereafter inspected every six (6) months.

II. Reservoir Cleaning (RCP)
Under the RIP programme, water quality of all reservoirs will be inspected biyearly. Following this inspection, reservoirs that recorded water quality violations for physical parameters, namely pH, turbidity, colour and free residual chlorine will be cleaned. Wherever possible, SYABAS will minimize water supply interruption during the cleaning programme.
