WaterGirl said "Singapore will have roughly 30 percent of their water coming from recycled use very soon."
This is incorrect. Singapore currently recycles a maximum of 1% for potable use. They have no plans to increase this to 30%. Singapore also has the largest seawater desalination plant in South East Asia.
Australia currently has no example of planned potable reuse. Brisbane does not currently use recycled water in the drinking water supply. This may occur once the combined dam levels reach 40%, however, they are currently at 75%. Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and the Gold Coast are all building or have completed seawater desalination plants.
