Water in urban areas is often sourced from man-made reservoirs or intensive managed water bodies. Besides providing potable water, reservoirs, lakes, canals and rivers provide several other functions, such as recreation opportunities and water storage for flood control. Different functions have different, often conflicting, requirements regarding water quality and quantity.
As cities become more crowded, countries lean towards reclaiming new lands and building increasingly below the surface. We provide underground planning and asset management to reduce local disruptions and provide reliability during development. We also combine information on the availability of resources with innovative techniques, to create more efficient and responsible practices.

Professor Bart van den Hurk, Scientific Director at Deltares, has today been elected as co-chair for the 7th Assessment Cycle of the IPCC’s Working Group II. The vote took place during the 59th IPCC plenary meeting in the headquarters of the United Nations Environment Programme in Nairobi, Kenya.
We can look back on 3 days of very successful and well attended edition of the Deltares Software Days. We were very fortunate that so many experts and enthusiasts came from all over South-East Asia to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences! Our great thanks go to the speakers and partners National University of Singapore (NUS) and TCOMS who made this possible. You can find our pictures on the Deltares Software Days South-East Asia (DSD-SEA) 2023 website. The presentations from the Seminar have also been published on SlideShare and can be found via our website.
Projects Multidisciplinary approaches
NUSDeltares developed, implemented and validated a national water quality monitoring and prediction service to help the National Environment Agency Singapore manage Singapore’s coastal waters.
The use of eco-engineered in-stream wetlands systems as part of the ABW-waters in Singapore achieves the water quality goals by optimizing the natural capabilities of plants to improve the quality of stormwater collected from the urban landscape.
The Centre will facilitate and stimulate cross-disciplinary cooperation across the SE Asian region, and will provide the data-rich environment to enable this. The SeCURE initiative has been presented and discussed already with a large number of potential partners and sponsors, and is rapidly gaining more support.
NUSDeltares is the long-lasting knowledge alliance between
the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Dutch applied knowledge institute Deltares.
We bring together the best minds, extensive network and experience from two leading institutes, to deal with the pressing climate change, sustainability and urbanization challenges Singapore and South-East Asia are facing today.Read more
