Forestalling Day Zero

Other challenges are local, such as the current South African drought, said to be the worst in more than 100 years, with Cape Town facing a potential scenario referred to as ‘Day Zero’, when the dams run dry. If this were to occur, it would leave Cape Town without
tap water.

Capetonians are increasingly shifting their focus from the skies to the ground. Rather than looking up in hopes of a long-awaited supply of rainwater (or divine intervention), they are now looking down, hoping to find drought relief in the Cape Flats, Table Mountain and Atlantis aquifers. Extracting water from the large, natural underground reservoirs can potentially provide Cape Town with an extra 150 Mℓ/day of water, combined.

But well drilling is not entirely new to Capetonians. With currently more than 22 000 registered boreholes, Cape Town’s citizens are already making use of the underground water; however, for the City of Cape Town, drilling for groundwater is a first in history. And the increasing focus on groundwater in South African public water supply can create an interesting business opportunity for well drillers. Because when you do something new, you want to do it right, meaning that expert knowledge on well drilling and groundwater extraction is likely to become an increasingly valuable asset in the South African
water industry.
