The Water Hub is a research and demonstration center at the site of the old Franschhoek Wastewater Treatment Works. Bringing innovation and development together, the center connects elements of the urban water cycle and explores the use of natural systems and bioprocesses for the treatment and re-use of contaminated water.
The Internet of Things (IoT) and the advancing sensor and telemetry technology accompanying it offers a promising solution to South Africa’s deteriorating capacity for accurately measuring surface water flow in rivers.
