Thanks to the Garden Route Casino Conservation Trust (GRCCT), the GCBR is engaging with approximately 120 households in KwaNonqaba and 20 in D’Almeida, measuring water usage, auditing leaking/broken pipes and taps, and fixing those.
Audits were done by five workers to ascertain where household water is leaking, which leads to water waste and high water bills. The team then moved in to fix the water leaks, which were mainly caused by leaking outside taps and toilet cistern failures. The team was capacitated to understand the value of water as a scarce resource, and whilst auditing and fixing, they do informal awareness raising in the identified households. Workshops to augment the water-scarce-message will be held in December 2017, and each household will receive a Wonderbag as water saving mitigation tool.
