WATER CRISIS – Statement by Executive Mayor, Adv. Gesie Van Deventer
With the severe drought continuing throughout the Western Cape, Premier Helen Zille has declared the Province as a disaster area. In the light thereof we have decided to also adjust to Level 4 water restrictions, in Stellenbosch Municipality from 1 June 2017.
This new level of restriction is very strict and I ask residents to please note the changes and adhere to it. We are in a crisis now more than ever. It is critically important to SAVE WATER!
Level 4 water restrictions prohibit any irrigation with municipal drinking water. This includes the watering or irrigation of all gardens, agricultural crops, sport fields, golf courses, schools, teaming institution facilities, nurseries, parks and other open spaces. Nurseries and customers involved in agricultural activities or historical gardens may, however, apply for exemption.
All residents using borehole water, treated effluent water, spring or well-points to water or irrigate their gardens must display clearly visible signage indicating the source. The National Department of Water and Sanitation now requires all boreholes and well points to be registered with its local Municipality. Residents must therefore comply and register their boreholes and well-points with the Municipality. Information for this is available on our website (www.stellenbosch.gov.za).
For residential customers, no washing of vehicles, trailers, caravans or boats using municipal drinking water are allowed. With regards to businesses, no washing of vehicles, trailers, caravans or boats with municipal drinking water are allowed except where an exemption has been granted. This applies to both formal and informal car washes. Exemption on application may be granted if water recycling is used in the washing process.
Additional restrictions include:
It is critically important for residents and businesses to note that all exemption granted under previous water restriction levels are withdrawn with immediate effect. Re-application will not be considered unless it is stated in the official notice. Residents should also note that the water pressure may be reduced to below applicable regulations or standard requirements to limited water leaks and such may cause intermitted water supply.
We are currently compiling a new set of water tariffs for publication. It will be delivered to consumers via flyers and advertisements in the local newspaper for public comment before finalisation. The tariffs are aimed at drastically reducing water consumption. These will come into effect on 1 July 2017.
I urge residents to make every effort to save water. There are many small and easy lifestyle changes that can be implemented that make a difference:
As a result of the severe drought conditions and due to the State of Emergency declared by the Western Cape Government, Stellenbosch Municipality has decided to move to Level 4 Water Restriction conditions as well as Level 4 Water tariffs. New restrictions are hereby published for implementation on 1 June 2017, but it must also be noted that a new set of water consumption tariffs will be published by delivery of flyers to consumers as well as advertising these in local newspapers. New water tariffs, designed to drastically reduce water consumption, will become effective on 1 July 2017.
Stellenbosch Municipality has approved Level 4 Water Restrictions, effective from 1 June 2017 until further notice.
RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE TO RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS
RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE TO NON-RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS
Customers should note that water pressure may be reduced to below applicable regulations or standards requirements to limit water leaks and such may cause intermittent water supply. Note that the water situation is very critical and any possible savings should be followed in order to make the supply of water last as long as possible.
