CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) says that it is on board with water saving efforts as it supports a campaign aimed at saving water at numerous schools in the Mother City.

CapeTalk and Shoprite have partnered in a campaign aimed at saving water at schools across Cape Town.

It involves the installation of a special water monitoring device called '”Dropula” at schools.

The device monitors water usage and flow and is a smart metre that attaches to the municipal metres that supply the schools.

The WCED’s Paddy Attwell says: “We plan to expand the number of schools receiving the digital water metre from 100 to 270 if the Shoprite-CapeTalk challenge is successful.”
