Team Name: Archi-WITs Project Title: High Maintenance Cost of Water Features in Parks Ministry/Organisation: Minisry of National Development (National Parks Board) Department: Parks Management, Facilities Branch NParks manages and maintains 58 water features including fountains and natural ponds island-wide in various parks. Water features are planned and constructed to enhance the landscaped design in our hot and humid tropical environment. Presently, the problems encountered are rapid growth of algae and foam in all our water features. The team members concurred that an effective solution to improve the water clarity and eliminate algae problem has the potential to reduce costs, improve overall aesthetics of our water features and ponds for the better enjoyment of all park users and enhance Singapore’s image as a Garden City of excellence. Team members therefore persevered to brainstorm for innovative ideas and continued to look for alternative possibilities that are able to improve the water quality of all water features. This would be in line with the organisation's priority to be cost effective and to reduce wastage of resources.
