Did you know that one of the leading hotels in the Waterfront can produce several thousand litres of fresh water an hour using sea water pumped from a borehole? The hotel is the latest large business in Cape Town to install a reverse-osmosis desalination plant so that it is no longer reliant on municipal water.
In previous decades in South Africa, we have invested heavily in engineered water infrastructure—but we can no longer solve our water woes by building more dams or canals. We need to rehabilitate, re-use and maintain the natural areas which are the sources of water for our cities and farms.
In the face of challenges such as Cape Town’s recent water crisis, a growing number of South African organisations and businesses are assuring their water security by harnessing the technology of desalination by installing their own water treatment facilities on-site. What are you doing?
