LATEST CAPE TOWN WATER NEWS

Water 101

 Where we find ourselves

Whether you are ready to purchase a borehole or have just started considering the option of a borehole, we can all agree why it's on our radar. Domestic water use constitues a major part of urban water demand and has, across the globe, gained more importance in terms of the sustainability of urban water supply. 

The effects of our recent severe drought has motivated the people of South Africa (especially Cape Town) to be better prepared and more knowledgeable as we move into a drier and hotter climate as predicted for South Africa.

 Things we have learnt

Homeowners have implemented behavioural changes such as water use reduction strategies as taught via educational campaigns and shared on social media. Citizens have also invested in water saving fixtures e.g. eco shower heads and technological implementations such as metered households and water use monitors etc.

 

These adaptations have influenced individual water use decisions, and changes in user practices and daily habits alone have shown that total water consumption levels can be significantly influenced.

 Continuing uncertaintity

The available water supply, in urban areas especially, is facing drastic declines in quantity and quality and coupled with fears over the costs associated with maintaining our failing infrastructure is cause for concern.

Whilst the water services industry is re-engineering itself to better understand supply and demand in this changing environment, it could be some time until we have well designed and developed urban water conservation strategies and policies in place.

What does this mean for the consumer?

At the consumer level these issues are very real and, in Cape Town, as we celebrate the glorious recent rains, the takeaway is that this is now the new norm, celebrating the rain, any and all rain. 

 

With this information at hand, one must consider carefully how investing in a borehole versus not doing so will impact you and your families life as we move into the future.
