LIVING WITH DAY ZERO 

Operating a business without water is an unfathomable thought; however, a very real reality for the industries, agribusiness and commercial operations in and around Cape Town.

ESI Africa welcomes you to view the webinar discussion below, which touches on the current water situation in the City of Cape Town, South Africa and the available technologies, strategies and solutions, to overcome the challenge.

From this web discussion it is evident that a combination of supply-side and demand-side solutions are essential. However, the key to successful implementation is collaborative efforts between national and local government on policy and regulation. This includes practices to minimise non-revenue water and increase the use of water already in the system, such as recycling of waste-water.

Highlighted points:

  • Health and sanitation
  • Public awareness and consumer mindset
  • Temporary and permanent solutions
  • Strategy and the way forward
  • Commerce
