The site preparation for the Strandfontein  desalination plant, one of the City of Cape Town’s seven desalination projects, is under way. These projects aim to make additional water available to supplement Cape Town’s existing water supply. The Monwabisi desalination plant is part of the City’s dedicated efforts to help see Cape Town through a drought and to avoid day zero. Seven projects have been earmarked as part of the first phase of the City’s Additional Water Supply Programme. These are the Monwabisi, Strandfontein, V&A Waterfront, and the Cape Town Harbour desalination plants; the Atlantis and Cape Flats Aquifer projects; and the Zandvliet water recycling project which will collectively produce an additional 196 million litres per day between February and July 2018.
