Tap into Century City’s recycled water supply to cut use of potable water

Century City commercial stakeholders are encouraged to tap into the CCPOA’s treated effluent supply line not only for irrigation purposes but also for flushing their toilets and for their cooling systems.

Chris Blackshaw, CEO of the Century City Property Owners’ Association, says Century City is in a unique and fortunate position as the developers have installed a dedicated pipeline to convey treated effluent from the City of Cape Town’s Potsdam Water Works to Century City and this is available for irrigation and other uses via a metered connection.
