Story for the Story board

Our story is about this certain factory emitting a 'fluffy' ball(pollutants) and a plane happened to pass by and the fluffy balls attack it causing it to crash, and when a little girl was walking by, she got killed by the plane crash.

Moral: The pollutants we emit indirectly harms us, so let's save the environment.

Leap week-NEWater visit

1) The three takeaways from today's visit are the four national taps, the newater cycle whereby the water goes in the three stage treatment and the fact that NEWater lacks nutrients and the NEWater bottles are not up for sale and only for sampling.

2) The 2 concepts are:
. Newater is used for industries and not for drinking. mainly for other house hold purposes like washing cars.
. By the time the water goes through the second stage of the purification, the water becomes safe to drink.

3) NEWater wants trust from the citizens of Singapore and thus it introduced the third stage of the purification process when it is just for safety - the UV Disinfection

4) I will try my best to not waste water from the taps or anywhere I am.
