With Day Zero looming, hotels in Cape Town have intensified their efforts to combat the water crisis and safeguard the Cape's tourism industry.

Johann Jordaan, First Group Services and Resorts director, says the group started planning the installation of boreholes last year.

The group’s Mount Sierra’s borehole installation is complete, and Hastings Hall and Riviera Suites will be finished by the end of the month. Tintswalo Atlantic in Cape Town has decreased its water consumption by 50%. In addition to sinking a borehole to enable the hotel to be self-sufficient, Tintswalo has invested in new technology to aid water saving, including the installation of pressure reducers on all taps and showers to turn water flow into a fine spray.
