Something new in Green Point Park

What's this, lurking behind the bushes?

There's something new behind the grysbokkie...

Aha! - 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.

And another beautiful wintry evening scene...
