Tengeh Reservoir (Chinese: 登格蓄水池) is one of the four reservoirs in the Western Water Catchment of Singapore.

This reservoir was formerly a river, Sungei Tengeh, which emptied into the Straits of Johor and was dammed to become a reservoir in the early 1980s (which is part of 'Western Water Catchment Scheme').

Now, Tengeh Reservoir is part of the SAFTI Live Firing Area (South) and has restricted access, where possible there are two bridges at the ends of the vicinity. One is for road at the western end and one is for walking at the eastern end. The Chinese name of the reservoir sounds similar to the English one.

The southern side of Tengeh Reservoir is the Raffles Golf Course, and the golf areas it can see the reservoir clearly.

There are also proposals for 'Wrexham Bridge' (road and rail bridges together), which connects Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim and Wrexham Drive.

Solar panels on reservoir[edit]

On 3 November 2011, Public Utilities Board (PUB) and Economic Development Board (EDB), had decided to install floating solar panel at Tengeh Reservoir, which is part of S$11 million project. This is the first solar panel to be at the reservoir/river, and Western Water Catchment (Located at Wrexham Village).[1]
