The City of Cape Town has approved a R15m "green" project to irrigate 2010 Soccer World Cup stadiums
After several green options were considered, the city decided to use underground spring water for irrigation The final report identified the use of underground spring water from a few natural springs situated above the Molteno Reservoir in the city bowl, as being the most favourable solution There seems to be enough spring water to irrigate the entire Green Point Common, as well as the adjacent Mouille Point Promenade and beach front.
This will be much cheaper than using potable water
The project will include a water supply pipeline from these natural springs to the Green Point Common area
