    Possible leh, since all those water will go to reservoir then PUB process it and send to your house. If every people collect and keep all, no more water in reservoir.

    Still waiting patiently for AUB where they process air and sell you in tanks to breath.

    seems more like the Government is worried about people not following standards and breeding mosquitoes rather than saying they own the rain water.

    also, i believe it's stated quite clearly that if you want to build a water catchment/processing facility you need to request for a permit from the government

    Rain water is nothing.

    Anyway you can use your collected rainwater for watering plants, washing the toilet, etc.

    Which part did they say cannot rain water ?? They only said that you have to pay a certain fee for 'disposing' of the water.

    I remember there is a hdb project where they collect rainwater then process it for toilet flushing.

    the only regulation regarding rainwater collection that I vaguely remember is all building design must aid channeling rainwater into drainage system to maximize rainwater collection.

    We used to have wells in our home here in Seletar for shower, drink & everything else and I don't see why one cannot build a good filter system @ home from collected rain water to drink.

    Larry Lim who collects classic cars here built a dehumidifier in his garage & uses the water collected in an underground tank.

    Maybe is the below, depending on how you interpret it.

    Sewerage and Drainage Act (CHAPTER 294)

    PART V
    PROTECTION OF WATER RESOURCES
    Prohibition on extraction of water
    31.—(1) No person shall, without the approval of the Board, construct any works for taking or intercepting water from any place or sea, within the territorial limits of Singapore.

    taking or intercepting water from any place... i interpret it as installing a pipe and steal water from their main pipe... rather than taking the sky juice...

    Drawing of ground water for consumption is illegal in Singapore I think. An example of the effect of drawing ground water is Bangkok city...
