Peirce Reservoirs

Lower Peirce Reservoir is one of the oldest reservoirs in Singapore. It is located near the MacRitchie Reservoir and the Upper Peirce Reservoir. It was originally created as the Peirce Reservoir but was designated as lower upon the creation of the Upper Peirce Reservoir. It is 6 hectares in size and contains many trees that are over 100 years old.

Upper Peirce Reservoir was originally known as the Kalang River Reservoir, Singapore's second reservoir was impounded across the lower reaches of the Kalang River and was renamed Peirce Reservoir in commendation of the services of Robert Peirce, who was the municipal engineer of Singapore.

Upper Peirce Reservoir was officially opened by then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew on 27th February 1977.
