Suspension of Water Activities at MacRitchie Reservoir – Ecological study on the following dates.

Dear Teachers, Captains, Coaches and paddlers,

PUB and the National University of Singapore (NUS) will be carrying out an ecological study at the MacRitchie Reservoir from Jul-Aug 2017.

For safety reasons, water activities in the reservoir will be suspended on the following dates and time (as shown in the table) during the research hours.

Fridays are back up date and will be deployed if weather does not permit study to be completed on Mon/Wed. Please consider Friday to be also one of the suspended timing unless otherwise advised/updated. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

This survey is part of a larger study which commenced in 2014 to quantitatively survey the trophic structure and population of aquatic animals in our reservoirs.

The technique called electrofishing will be used. For more info on the method, please read: http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/environment/new-study-to-find-out-about-life-in-singapores-reservoirs
