About Marina Barrage [source PUB]

Built across the mouth of Marina Channel, Marina Barrage (MB) creates Singapore’s 15th reservoir, and the first in the heart of the city.

With a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, Marina catchment is the island’s largest and most urbanised catchment. Together with two other reservoirs, Marina Reservoir has increased Singapore’s water catchment from half to two-thirds of the country’s land area.

Marina Barrage is the vision of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew (the first Prime Minister of Singapore) more than two decades ago when he envisaged damming the mouth of the Marina Channel to create a freshwater reservoir.

Marina Barrage brings about three benefits: a source of water supply, flood control and a venue for lifestyle attraction.
