Description

The Marina Barrage creates Singapore's 15th reservoir, Marina Reservoir, which is the first in the heart of the city. It acts as a tidal barrier to alleviate flooding in the low-lying parts of the city such as Chinatown, Boat Quay, Jalan Besar and Geylang. It is also set to become the city's latest lifestyle attraction with water activities and river cruises.

The Marina Barrage is the result of Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew’s vision nearly two decades ago when he envisaged damming the mouth of the Marina Channel to create a freshwater reservoir.

There are a total number of nine crest gates that span all 350m of the mouth of the Marina Channel, keeping out seawater and transform the Marina Basin into a freshwater body. With further treatment, the water will then be channelled to various locations in Singapore.

Covered by the Green Roof and filled with numerous water features and water play areas in the Central Courtyard. The Marina Barrage is a big playground for all ages.

Marina Barrage has clinched the top award in a prestigious US environmental engineering competition, beating 33 other entries by other countries. It is the second project outside the US to have won the award in the last decade.

During the Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010, the athletes will visit Marina Barrage where they get to learn the importance of water conservation and how they can contribute positively to the environment through hands-on activities.

The facilities at the Marina Reservoir during Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010 include a boat-storage shed for up to 200 boats, a boat-washing area, toilets and showers, and a doping-control station. A seating gallery for approximately 1,000 spectators will be constructed.
