In “My Summer in Singapore,” in the Summer 2012 issue of Arizona Water Resource (p. 9), University of Arizona faculty member Shane Snyder describes Singapore’s “long history of striving for water independence.” Since 1868, the now independent city-state of Singapore, with over five million people on a 272-square-mile island, has been using reservoirs, imported water from Malaysia, recycled water, and desalination in an effort to have a stable and sufficient water supply. Dr. Snyder describes Singapore as a “global leader in water resource management and technology and a global hub for water research and innovation,” and the city has hosted the Singapore International Water Week since 2008 (next held in 2014).
