CAPE TOWN - Levi Straus & Co has linked up with water treatment officials in the South African city of Cape Town to ensure its manufacturing facility in the city uses only recycled water.

A pipeline from the city's Athlone Wastewater Treatment Works has been extended by two kilometres to provide the factory, in the Epping industrial area of Cape Town, with treated effluent water.

It followed a call by public officials in Cape Town for businesses in the city to use treated effluent for operational and irrigation purposes, instead of drinking water, to protect precious supplies.
