CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town on Monday urged residents to continue saving water despite the easing up of restrictions.

Residents are being allowed to water their gardens only after 6 pm or before 9 am on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, for a maximum of one hour.

People have also been urged to only use water-efficient irrigation like dripper systems, drip-lines or soaker hose irrigation systems.

Cape Town dam levels are currently at 52.2%; much higher than last year this time when it was 24%.
