Warning to water wasters

2017-02-28 06:01

As Cape Town has only 121 days of water, the City of Cape Town has published the locations of the top 100 water consumers.

As of yesterday (Monday) dam levels have dropped to 33%.

With the last 10% of a dam’s water mostly not being useable, dam levels are effectively at 23%.

Consumption is at 837m litres of collective use per day, which is above the revised water consumption target of 700m litres per day.

Regular enforcement operations remain in place, says Mayor Patricia de Lille

The average household uses about 20 000F per month. This would be less than 1000F per day. High users are using much more, with some over 50 000FF per month.
