2010 - 2013 Cleansing Biotope at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park
The redevelopment of Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park was part of a joint initiative by the Public Utilities Board (PUB) and National Parks Board (NParks) under the Island-wide Active, Beautiful and Clean (ABC) Waters Master Plan. The concrete canal has been de-concretised and naturalised into a beautiful 3 km meandering river, bringing park users closer to the water way. Addition to the naturalised river, the park also features natural cleansing biotopes that uses plants to treat water and maintain the water quality of the ponds in the park without the use of chemicals. Enviro Pro was involved in the construction of cleansing biotope of around 4500 m2. The biotopes help to improve water quality while providing an aesthetic element for the park.
