  8. The approach for the South West site was driven by a long-term need • Mains water scarcity in the area • Restrictions to mains connection • Effluent costs • Borehole water supply • We now rely mainly on borehole water (which we recycle) • Mains water is just used for ‘topping up’ Vee Gururajan
