Record Fine For Construction Company's Damage To Singapore Water Main


A construction company has been fined S$56,500 for damaging a large water main and carrying out unauthorised works at Dunearn Road in September 2019, which disrupted water supply to nearly 40 households in the area. Feng Ming Construction was last month convicted of damaging a 500mm diameter water main and fined S$55,000, said PUB in a press release on Monday (Sep 14). This is the highest fine imposed by the State Courts for water main damage under the Public Utilities Act to date, the agency added. The company was also convicted and fined S$1,500 for carrying out unauthorised sheet piling installation works.
