'10-litre challenge' is a programme implemented by the PUB.

Managing the demand of water is just as crucial as securing an adequate supply of water. PUB has a wide-ranging water conservation plan that encourages customers to use water wisely (one of which is the 10-litre challenge). Taken from the PUB website, 'Singapore’s per capita domestic water consumption has been brought down from 165 litres per day in 2003 to the current 155 litres. The target is to lower it to 140 litres by 2030.'

We can reach the target if we all cooperate and help save water for the benefit of everyone!

Test-run by one of our group members

Esther Wong's results :
 This is taken at the start of the test-run. The water meter reading is : 30509060m^3
This is taken one week after the test-run have started.
The water meter reading is : 30539572m^3
Esther then installed her water thimbles into her taps.
A week later after she have installed the water thimbles, the water meter reading is : 30562950m^3

For the first week (without water thimbles), the amount of water used was : 30512m^3
For the second week (with water thimbles), the amount of water used was : 23378m^3
Which meant that Esther saved about 20% of water!
Thats alot!
