Students CPUT committed to conserve water

The Department of Student Affairs (DSA) of the Cape Penninsula University of Technology has committed itself to conserve water.

The DSA signed a water saving pledge, along with the City of Cape Town (CoCT) and the Department of Water Affairs (DWA).

The pledge forms part of Water Month Celebrations, an initiative of the City that aims to raise awareness of the importance of sustaining the country’s water resources.

Dean of Student Affairs, Cora Motale says CPUT is an institution that creates futures, and thus will play a crucial role in ensuring that there are adequate water resources for future generations.

“We are pledging that we will conserve water and respect it,” she says.

The pledge will see CPUT work closely with the City and the DWA in conserving water.

The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services, Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg says it is vital that all members of society play a proactive role in conserving water.

He says the pledge is important for the City as it will raise awareness of water related issues amongst students.

“We hope that students will take what they learnt at university and apply it in their homes and their future workplaces,” he says.

Representatives from the DWA commended CPUT for making a commitment to sustain the country’s water resources.
