Marina Barrage will house world's largest water pumps. These pumps are part of Singapore's flood control measures. These drainage pumps is located next to the reservoir. These pumps are the world's largest and are specially built in the Netherlands. Their job is to drain out excess water during flooding. Each pump weighs 28 tonnes, or about the weight of 400 men. And when operational, it will be able to drain, in one minute, an amount of water that can fill up an Olympic-sized swimming pool. When there is heavy rain and high tide, the pumps will be set in motion, draining water from the reservoir into the sea.
