Dams that supply Cape Town have declined by 1% over the past week to 46,6% (2018: 20,9%) of storage capacity. Read more below:
Cape Town’s collective water consumption for the past week increased by 22 million litres to 607 million litres per day of collective usage.
According to the City’s records dams were at 20,9% of storage capacity at the same time in 2018 and at 22,8% of storage capacity in 2017.
Although we are in a much improved position due to higher dam levels and reduced demand when compared to the same period in previous years, we encourage residents to continue using water wisely.
Level 3 restrictions remain in place to aid dam recovery.
