Cramoil Singapore, a toxic industrial waste collection company, has been fined $16,600 for the illegal discharge of high concentration of toxic and hazardous substances in its used water, into the public sewerage system. The concentration levels were so high that it could have caused fires in the system. In April 2018, Jurong Water Reclamation Plant received used water containing Volatile Organic Compounds, which were traced to Cramoil’s premises. PUB officers caught Cramoil discharging industrial used water containing these compounds and issued a stop-order notice. Cramoil had committed 20 similar offences since 2010 and has been fined a total of $52,500 before.
