Drought-stricken Nelson Mandela Bay opts for desalination – South Africa
The decision was eagerly awaited in Nelson Mandela Bay. The municipal council of this town in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa has approved the construction of a plant to transform sea water into drinking water.
The municipality’s choice comes in the context of a drought that is particularly affecting this part of South Africa.
This phenomenon, which is linked to climate change, is at the root of the water stress that the rainbow nation has been experiencing for several years.
