Reading Time: < 1 minute

The City of Cape Town says warm and windy weather conditions are contributing to the decline in dam levels in the province.

The levels now stand at 36.8%. Mayoral spokesperson, Zara Nicholson, says the current water usage is also 82-million-liters above the 500-million-liters a day threshold.

Nicholson has called on members of the public to adhere to the strict water restrictions.

“This past week we have seen a decline in our dam levels of 1%, this has come with some reduced consumption to 582 million litres a day, we ask for 500 million litres per day for consumption and we ask that Capetonians come on board with more people doing everything they can to save water.”
