Eddie Andrews, Mayco member (South), visited the Virgin Active gym in Westgate earlier this month to learn about how this health club has reduced its water usage in recent months.

Some of the gym’s water-saving measures include reducing the backwashing of the pools and using pool covers overnight to reduce water evaporation.

Andrews commended the gym’s staff for their concerted effort to save water.

He says officials of the City of Cape Town are encouraged by the results they have seen and thank businesses across the city that have gone above and beyond to practise responsible water usage during this drought crisis. The City officials warn that consumption must be brought down even further.
