Cape Town has approved a R15million "green" project to irrigate 2010 Soccer World Cup stadiums, an official said yesterday .
After several green options were considered, the city decided to use underground spring water for irrigation, said alderman Clive Justus, mayoral committee member for the city's utility services.
It would cost about R15million. About R2,3million was available on the current budget for the 2008/9 financial year. The remainder would come from the 2009/10 budget.
Until now, the Green Point Common, which includes the Metropolitan Golf Course, had been irrigated with pure drinking water.
