Western Water Catchment


Western Water Catchment (Malay: Kawasan Tadahan Air Barat; Simplified Chinese: 西部集水区, Traditional Chinese: 西部集水區, Pinyin: Xībù Jíshuǐqū; Tamil: மேற்கத்திய நீர் நீர்ப்பிடிப்பு) is a planning area in the West Region of Singapore. Covering 69.46 square meters, it is by far the largest planning area in the island nation. It is bordered by Lim Chu Kang and Sungei Kadut in the northeast, Choa Chu Kang, Tengah and Jurong West in the east, Pioneer in the south and Tuas in the southwest. It also faces the Straits of Johor, across from the Malaysian state of Johor in the northeast.

The Western Water Catchment is home to four reservoirs namely the Tengeh Reservoir, Poyan Reservoir, Murai Reservoir and Sarimbun Reservoir. The Singapore Armed Forces also uses this area for live-firing, so access is restricted to members of the public.
