National water agency PUB has said that the tap water at Raffles City is safe for consumption.
SINGAPORE: National water agency PUB has said that the tap water at Raffles City is safe for consumption.
In a statement on Monday, PUB said it took water samples from the distribution pipe, the water mains and the water storage tank of the building on Sunday for tests -- and the lab results have showed that the water is safe for drinking.
This follows reports that in at least five restaurants at Raffles City last Friday, the water was cloudy and had a foul smell.
The water is now clear.
PUB said renovation works at the mall could have caused temporary discolouration of the water. It also noted that the issue was confined to Level 1 and Basement 1 of Raffles City.
PUB said that as an added precaution, the management of the building has carried out thorough flushing of the main distributing water pipe.
PUB will also continue to monitor the water quality.
