CAPE TOWN –The Cape Town City’s Executive Deputy Mayor, Ian Neilson said the city is excited by the announcement that the dam levels supplying Cape Town dropped by 0.3% to 21.9% last week but urges people to continue with water saving measures.
“Dam levels dropped by 0,3% last week. This is good news, but we have to keep saving,” said Neilson.
The Deputy Mayor said the decline which is lower than in previous weeks, is a welcome confirmation of the impact of the continued efforts by Capetonians to save water, and includes a small contribution from rainfall.
“Dam levels are however still lower than they were in previous years at this time; and we have to continue our saving efforts to ensure that we get through this year safely.”
The City has urged the Capetonians to continue to reduce water consumptions even more to avoid Day Zero totally; “Getting down to 50 litres per day is the only way to keep Day Zero away,” said the City Of Cape Town.
