The Western Cape and in particular Cape Town and surrounding areas are suffering from the worst drought in decades. Dam levels are critically low and in a matter of a few weeks the city could be without water. Fortunately, water supply at Pearl Valley is being supplemented by a 1.5 Ml/day water purification plant.
The water is sourced from boreholes on the property, it is then treated via its own water purification plant. This plant was built at a cost of R16 million and will supply drinking water to all the homes in Pearl Valley as well as Val de Vie.
Each household will still have to comply with the water restrictions imposed by the Drakenstein Municipality. The purification plant merely guarantees owners and guests a source of clean water.
