IC Project - Powerpoint Slides on Marina Barrage

  1. 1. Marina barrage<br />Done By : Karen Lim<br />Reg. No. : 8<br />Class : 2B<br />
  2. 2. Marina Barrage .<br />Built across the mouth of the Marina Channel, the Marina Barrage creates Singapore’s 15th reservoir, and the first in the heart of the city.<br />With a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, or one-sixth the size of Singapore, the Marina catchment is the island’s largest and most urbanised catchment.<br />
  3. 3. Water Supply .<br />Marina Reservoir combines with the future Punggol and Serangoon reservoirs will increase Singapore's water catchment areas from half to two-thirds of Singapore's land areas. <br />Desalting had begun in April 2009 through natural replacement by rainwater. <br />Marina Reservoir will meet more than 10% of Singapore's current water demand. <br />
  4. 4. Flood Control .<br />The Marina Barrage is part of a comprehensive flood control scheme to alleviate flooding in the low-lying areas in the city such as Chinatown, Boat Quay, JalanBesar and Geylang. <br />During heavy rain, the series of nine crest gates at the dam will be activated to release excess storm water into the sea when the tide is low. <br />In the case of high tide, giant pumps which are capable of pumping an Olympics-size swimming pool per minute will drain excess storm water into the sea.<br />
  5. 5. Lifestyle Attraction .<br />As the water in the Marina Basin is unaffected by the tides, its water level will be kept constant all year round.<br />This is ideal for all kinds of recreational activities such as boating, windsurfing, kayaking and dragonboating etc. <br />
  6. 6. Green Roof .<br />The iconic Green Roof uses 100% recycled plastics and eco-friendly drainage cells. <br />This large rooftop garden also provides natural heat insulation for the building.<br />The grass and the soil shields the building from the sun and reduces maximum surface temperature by 19˚C.<br />
  7. 7. Solar Park .<br />The Solar Park is one of the largest collections of solar panels in Singapore.<br />The 405 panels generate about 50% of the daytime electricity needed for indoor lighting and power points at the barrage.<br />
  8. 8. Sustainable Singapore Gallery .<br />The facility houses a gallery highlighting Singapore’s efforts and achievements in maintaining a sustainable environment.<br />Through interactive multi-media displays, exhibits and games, it educates the public about important environmental and water issues.<br />
  9. 9. First reservoir in the city comes alive .<br />Water from local catchments is a pillar of Singapore’s water sustainability strategy, along with imported water, ultra-clean, high-grade reclaimed water branded as NEWater in Singapore, and desalinated water. <br />Collectively, these four sources of water are known as the 'Four National Taps', a long-term water supply strategy to ensure a diversified and sustainable water supply for Singapore in the years to come.<br />
  10. 10. Urban Stormwater Collection .<br />Singapore has two separate systems to collect rainwater and used water. <br />Rainwater is collected through a comprehensive network of drains, canals, rivers, stormwater collection ponds and reservoirs before it is treated for drinking water supply. <br />This makes Singapore one of the few countries in the world to harvest urban stormwater on a large-scale for its water supply.<br />
