Water seepage at UCT

Kevin Winter who heads up the UCT Water Task Team would like help from the UCT community to help identify the location of water seepage (aka springs) on the various campuses. There are apparently loads of them. Some are weak running at 1 litre / 20 seconds but others are filling the basement of buildings right now.

The map below is an OpenStreetMap. Please pin any water resources you found, here. Once we have the locations a team can go out to inspect the sites and see if we can  capture the water in tanks and obviously also see what use could be made of the water. An image of the location would also help.

To get involved or help with the coding to help move UCT to a water sensitive campus, please get in touch or email
