The City of Cape Town will have to consider alternative water sources in light of the worst drought in decades.
Although the City's Ernest Sonnenberg said the best mechanism is water restrictions, he unpacked other alternatives available for the municipality.
According to Sonnenberg, there are a number of options to consider for medium to long-term.
Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:
1. A water augmentation scheme which involves transferring excess water from the Berg River Dam.
2. An aquifer from at Table Mountain for future water users.
3. Using reclaimed water for non-potable use in local industries.
4. Investing in wellpoints and the use of greywater.
5. Potential water desalination programmes for the long-term plan.
