Award to City of Cape Town

An article by dr. Ronnie Mckenzie recently appeared in The Source, a quarterly magazine, co-published by the IWA and PFD Media Group. The article offered a detailed assessment of the water-supply situation in Cape Town. It turns out Cape Town was neither the first municipality to contend with scarcity, nor did it suffer a complete water supply system failure.
City of Cape Town has also been awarded a certificate by the International Water Association, which acknowledges Cape Town as the first city in the world to reduce its water consumption by 50% in just three years. Read more here.
