City of Cape Town Deputy Mayor, Ian Neilson, says the city is in the process of drafting a long-termwater strategy to set a vision forwater and sanitation services for the next 20 years. Neilson addressed a rating certification ceremony in Pinelands in which 14 organisations were honoured for their water management and conservation. The City has in the past three years experienced its worst drought in a century. Residents and businesses have helped decrease waterconsumption from one-point-two billion litres daily to 516 million litres per day. Neilson says thewater situation now is better compared to this time last year, but there’s still a need to ensure other reliable sources of water, other than dams: “A draft water strategy is ready for public participation. I will urge you to study it and provide us with your comments. It emphasises the importance of building resilience through partnerships and collaboration, active participation of our residents, businesses, research bodies and other spheres of government will be critical for the success of the strategy.” SA breweries in Newlands is among those companies who received a 5-star rating for their strategies to save water. Acting Environmental manager Andile Kebe,says savingwater has been a strategy: “Ten years ago we used 4.78 litres ofwater to make one litre of beer. In the past ten years we have been able to save 2 litres of water, it has given us a chance to even share thewater that we have in the Newlands area.”
