GreenCape, supported by the City of Cape Town, has recently published a resilience case study, titled: Rabie Property Group - Using treated effluent for a water resilient Century City Urban Square precinct, which focuses on how the Rabie Property Group is leveraging treated effluent use for toilet and urinal flushing, irrigation and cooling tower use to decrease potable water usage. 

This case study focusses on the water-related resilience measures, particularly the use of TE to reduce potable water demand.

This case study is written for:

  • Property developers looking for resilience-led interventions to decrease their dependence on potable water for new developments as well as developers looking for Green Star certification.
  • Property owners and managers looking for examples of how to decrease their building operating expenses.
  • Tenants wanting to understand the interventions currently utilised to withstand
    acute climate events such as the most recent Cape Town drought to make informed decisions when selecting a building to ensure resilience in their long term operations.

The case study offers a full background, solutions to challenges, impact and key insights.
