Capetown – one extreme to the other

This April and May the South African city of Capetown was in danger of running out of water completely. A huge raft of conservation measures applied to industry, agriculture and the population just held off disaster.

As I flew out to attend the Water Institute of South Africa (WISA) conference in June, an absolute deluge of rain arrived. The reservoirs which had been dangerously low, at less than 10% capacity, were above 60% within a week and there were waterfalls flowing off the mountains around Capetown, which had not been seen for a long time.

This was the first time I had attended the WISA conference and I was very impressed with the size of the exhibition area and number and quality of the papers presented. Even better, our distributor WCSA Water Components South Africa won first prize for the best stand.
