City of CT: Dam levels effectively at 29%
The municipality has again urged residents to cut their consumption as it prepares to further tighten water restrictions from 1 February.
CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town says dam levels are effectively sitting at 29%.
The municipality has again urged residents to cut their consumption as it prepares to further heighten water restrictions from 1 February.
The city's Xanthea Limberg says: “As for the highest water users, you can expect a visit from us. It must be emphasised that there are high water users across all suburbs in the metro. We are currently enhancing our existing water demand programmes, to lower consumption and further reduce water leakage.”
Water consumption was again above the collective water usage target of 800 million litres per day on Monday.
Residents have been urged to continue saving water.
“I warn residents not to feel emboldened by our recent rainfall. This is not the time to relax your efforts and to become complacent. We need those great water ambassadors out there to continue to work with us and to save water.”
The city says it will continue to implement its plans to reduce high water consumption, which include repairing underground water leaks, replacing aging water mains and introducing the stepped tariff billing system, among others.
