Bedok Reservoir is a reservoir in the eastern part of Singapore, to the north of Bedok New Town. The reservoir has a surface area of 880,000 m², and a capacity of 12.8 million m³. The mean depth of the reservoir is 9 m, with a maximum depth of 18.2 m. The shoreline length is 4.3 km.
Bedok Reservoir was constructed under the Sungei Seletar/Bedok Water Scheme, completed in 1986. The scheme involved the damming of Sungei Seletar to form Lower Seletar Reservoir, the creation of Bedok Reservoir from a former sand quarry between 1966 and 1972 and the construction of Bedok Waterworks. The earth excavated was used for East Coast Reclamation in the 1970s (HDB Annual Reports). Its unique feature was the construction of nine stormwater collection stations to tap surface runoff from the surrounding urbanised catchments. Eight of these collection stations are ponds located at Yishun, Tampines, Bedok and Yan Kit new towns. Bedok Reservoir was constructed under the Sungei Seletar/Bedok Water Scheme, completed in 1986.

It was originally quarried in the 1930s to supply sand for the reclamation of Kallang basin for the building of Kallang Airport. A 6 km long railway was built along with associated sidings and 13 locomotives were supplied by Pecketts for transporting the sand trains between the quarry and Kallang Basin.
