CAPE TOWN’S GROUNDWATER: IS IT AN OPTION FOR MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLY?

 As of today, Thursday 23 February 2017, Cape Town has 127 days worth of water left in its dams.* We seriously need to plan ahead as water shortages are only going to get worse. One option is the use of groundwater from aquifers that lie under our city. Come and listen to one of South Africa's groundwater experts, Dr Chris Hartnady, of Umvoto Africa, who is delivering the keynote talk at the AGM of the Friends of Meadowridge Common on Monday 27 February at 7h30 pm in the Meadowridge Library, Howard Drive, Meadowridge. (Click here for directions.) Dr Chris Hartnady will be giving an illustrated talk on
CAPE TOWN’S GROUNDWATER: IS IT AN OPTION FOR MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLY?
Chris was recently interviewed on Cape Talk by John Maythem, and appeared on Carte Blanche on the subject of Cape Town's water supply two weeks ago. Come and ask any questions you may have about water, well points and boreholes.
All welcome. No need to book. Refreshments will be served and secure parking provided.
For more information telephone the Chairman of the Friends of Meadowridge Common at 021 715 9206.
