ABI member focus: The Groenland Water Users Association


FEB, 2018

In this extreme water crisis that has hit the Western Cape, the GWUA decided to donate water to City of Cape Town from the Eikenhof Dam.

This donation of between 7.5 – 10 million cubic litres of water came in February 2018 and has helped push #DayZero back by 20 days. Yet, this donation does not come without risk for the farmers.
