CT residents urged to use water sparingly despite improvement in dam levels
Currently standing at 25%, the levels are still a far cry from last year's 46%.
CAPE TOWN - Dam levels in the Western Cape are edging up slightly. Currently standing at 25%, the levels are still a far cry from last year's 46%.
Cape Town's Local Government MEC Anton Bredell is appealing to residents to continue using water sparingly, despite the weekend rain of which the impact on dam levels is still to be determined.
Bredell says he hopes the dam levels recover to at least 75% by October.
The MEC's spokesperson, James-Brent Styan said: “This year remains very, very serious, the situation, the drought conditions remain in place across the province. We are very concerned about the coming summer month if we go into the summer with these dam levels at low levels.”
