About the Project:
Jurong Port is the first port in the world that has built a bioretention system for
stormwater treatment at its berths.
The bioretention system receive runoff from the berths, treats it, and harvests the filtrate for auto-irrigating the vegetation in the system. The auto-irrigation allows the plants to survive in the harsh environment of the port. Excess filtrate and runoff are discharge to the drainage system.
The system is designed to be self-regulating so as to require minimum maintenance. Jurong Port Berth J10 & J11 is a ABC Waters certified project.
