According to a tender document issued last week, three proposed new desalination plants will be deposited at three strategic points in Cape Town to generate extra drinking water for both residents and visitors.

The three selected towns include Cape Town’s Granger Bay, Hout Bay, and Dido Bay.

There is also an additional plan to process an extra 500 Ml of water as announced by the Cape Town Mayor Patricia De Lille. She also said that the sources of water for the town will be a mix of the desalination plants, ggroundwaterextraction, and water reuse.

However, concerning the restrictions placed on water usage in Cape Town, De Lille claimed that Cape Town still has a long way to go.
