World Water Day 2012 Celebrated on the Reservoirs of Singapore

To celebrate World Water Day 2012, SingPost issued a set of commemorative stamps, Reservoirs of Singapore, in 10 designs featuring reservoirs of the country’s drinking water supply.
Observed every year on 22 March, the World Water Day, an initiative that grew out of the
1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) aims to raise global awareness on the importance of water and advocates for the sustainable management of water resources.
The five reservoirs illustrated on the 1st Local stamps are the Jurong Lake, Punggol
Reservoir, Lower Seletar Reservoir, Serangoon Reservoir and Marina Reservoir; and on the 50-cents stamp, Lower Peirce Reservoir, MacRitchie Reservoir, Bedok Reservoir, Pandan Reservoir and Upper Seletar Reservoir.
