CT residents urged to continue saving water despite rain
The rain has brought much-needed relief to part of the Western Cape, but it’s unclear how it has affected dam levels.
CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town has cautioned people to continue saving water even while it's raining.
The council on Thursday approved Level 3B restrictions which further limits the watering of gardens and washing of cars.
Many people have taken to social media to post pictures of buckets they've placed outside to catch the rainfall, some even filled their wheelie refuse bins.
It's unclear how the rain that's brought much-needed relief to part of the Western Cape has affected the dam levels.
The city's Priya Reddy says: "We do still encourage all residents to keep saving water, one morning of rainfall does not mean the end of water restrictions. And if the rain continues we encourage people to catch as much as they can."
