It seems well organised (sorry the pun) and looks to have no shortage of water Ayush.
Looks so peaceful, Ayush. Good to know that Singapore is looking after its water supply.

Heh, difference of terms. This we will refer to as a dam (facility with a dam wall on one side) to catch and hold rain water. Normally built in a river system. A reservoir is a closed holding tank (a huge concrete or steel unit) that holds the treated and clean water for an area on a hill or raised platform - to create gravity pressure for the area that is served. It is these little differences in word usage, that can make big misunderstandings. Meantime, no one is wrong with the use of their vocabulary.

Is there any recreational use of this reservoir?
