Dams that supply Cape Town have declined by 1,1% over the past week to 52,2% of storage capacity.

On the upside, the City of Cape Town’s collective water consumption for the past week dropped to 605 million litres per day.

The decline in consumption is testament to our residents’ water-wise behaviour and great savings efforts.

Capetonians have done well to remain within the target of 650 million litres of collective usage per day. This will help the City’s dams to recover and build a solid foundation for a more water-sensitive City in years to come.

Residents are reminded that Level 3 water restrictions are in place which includes the following, among others:

Daily usage of 105 litres per person per day in total irrespective of whether you are at home, work or elsewhere

Washing of vehicles, trailers, caravans and boats with municipal drinking water is only allowed if using a bucket. Washing with non-drinking water or cleaning with waterless products or dry steam-cleaning processes is strongly encouraged

You are encouraged to flush toilets with greywater, rainwater or other non-drinking water

No watering/irrigation with municipal drinking water within 48 hours of rainfall that provides adequate saturation
