The Kallang Basin cleanup will begin early on Saturday morning, 20th September 2008 – at 8am – because the lowered water level will start to be raised back to normal at 9am!
Overseeing the cleanup sites there is Waterways Watch Society and ICCS Zone Captain Ng Kai Scene. They have conducted the cleanup there for many years but this year, with the barrage across the mouth of the Singapore River completed, Kallang Basin is now a reservoir.
Working there this year are NUS High School, NTU Earthlink, Compassvale Secondary School, German European School and a team from Ministry of Environment and Water Resources.
The marine debris that has accumulated in Kallang over the decades remain and the annual ICCS exercise contributes towards the objective of eliminating this historical load.
