Permeable Paving

One of the fastest growing approaches to green site development is permeable paving. There are a variety of options of permeable concrete paving but all operate on the same principle: to allow rainwater to seep through a paved surface, which naturally cleanses pollutants and recharges aquifers instead of having the storm water run onto other properties and into storm drains.

Water metering key to effective water management

Water conservation was a headline topic on the periphery of the COP17 United Nations climate change conference in Durban in December last year. But “all the planning and good intentions in the world will fail without accurate water metering,” says Basil Bold, managing director of Sensus South Africa.  “Uncountable litres of water are being lost in South Africa through inefficient metering – and sometimes no metering at all,” Bold says. “The fact is that the successful management and effective conservation of water resources is impossible without efficient metering.”  Sensus SA is a leading supplier of water meters and metering systems to municipalities and water utilities across the country.

When you want concrete that ‘leaks like a sieve’

With ever-increasing urbanisation and the resultant sprawl of rooftops and hard-surfaced landscapes, the effective management of storm water drainage has become increasingly difficult. The risk of flash floods escalates and the impact of rapid runoff on natural watercourses can cause serious environmental damage.  Lafarge Readymix  has launched Hydromedia™, a new, fast-draining concrete pavement solution to address this problem in South Africa. Hydromedia provides for rapid storm water removal from streets, parking areas, driveways, walkways and other hard surfaced areas. It offers a drainage medium that enables rainwater to return to and replenish groundwater reserves locally and it can reduce the costs and long-term maintenance requirements of storm water management systems – for public authorities and private property owners.

Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award Cape Town winner

The winner of the Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award (DBUAA) Cape Town 2012 is Mothers Unite from Lavender Hill. Chosen by an independent jury from a pool of 254 entries and a shortlist of eight finalists, the project will receive a prize of R750 000.  The winning project – selected as that which most benefitted local residents through an improved urban environment – was founded in 2007 in a mother’s home. Mothers Unite provides a safe haven from the gangsterism, drugs and violence that are part and parcel of street and home life in the area. Three afternoons a week, in a ‘village’ in the grounds of the City’s Seawinds multipurpose hall, 120 children between the ages of 3 and 15 are provided with alternative activities such as storytelling, computer literacy, food garden training, art therapy, sports and play. Built with donated shipping containers, the village is made up of a library, kitchen, office, sheltered area, playground and food garden. The Mothers Unite project addresses the family unit and encourages family participation and a shared commitment to community development, providing a support base for the family and a safe place for children to play, explore and develop.
