CT may see severe water restrictions


Dams in Cape Town are at 44% capacity, and the City of Cape Town is concerned on the amount of water being used by residents.

The City is threatening to implement even stricter water regulations, if the amount of water used daily isn’t significantly reduced.

City of Cape Town Media Officer Simon Maytham says “It’s essential that residents share and raise awareness and that any contraventions are reported.”

Over 859 million litres of water have been used per day between 2 and 8 January.

An ideal usage is under 800 million litres per day.
