Something new in the Green Point Park…




NEW WATER WHEEL!

It’s the new water wheel. It will be set into motion by spring water, which has been piped from natural springs in Oranjezicht to the Green Point Park. I am told the flow rate of the Camissa spring water is 4o liters per second – that’s 2400 liters per minute! (actually that sounds too much – need to check this info). Anyway, energy generated by the water wheel will be used to power street lighting in the Park. Very neat.
