GreenCape has been working with companies to showcase examples of alternative and reduced water use in their respective business sectors. The Bayside Mall is an example of a shopping centre which has been able to drastically reduce water use for public toilets and landscape irrigation by simply harvesting onsite rain- and stormwater.
The solutions to reduce water consumption implemented by the Bayside Mall management has included the capture, detention, storage and use of stormwater from the centre's roof and nearby stormwater drains. The use of this water has resulted in a 93% water reduction for public toilet flushing and landscape irrigation.
