City advises users to still not waste water

accreditation

The levels of the dams which supply Cape Town declined by 1,2 % over the past week to 68,2 % of storage capacity. This is compared to dam levels of 33,1% at the same time last year.

The average water consumption increased by 46 million litres per day to 587 million litres per day for the past week, which is well within the Level 3 usage range of 650 million litres of collective usage per day. Level 3 recovery restrictions give some relief to residents and business, while advocating for continued water-wise usage as it is difficult to predict the rainfall that Cape Town will receive in 2019 and 2020.

The City is urging residents to continue saving water over the festive season and to “remain mindful of how far we have come since January 2018”.
