Water tanks in Singapore will come under new and stricter security requirements from July 1 2011:

WATER tanks in Singapore will come under new and stricter security requirements from July 1 2011, said the national water agency PUB on Friday. These include more restrictive access to the tanks and mandatory supervision of any maintenance work. The agency will also check all 14,000 buildings with water tanks here after July 1, to make sure the new measures have been followed. It said it will monitor the situation and take further action if needed. The new measures are in response to the dumping of a body in a Woodlands water storage tank on May 16. The incident was the first since 2002, when five boys gained access to a water storage tank in Paya Lebar and dumped 1kg of washing powder into the tank.
