Eskom’s loadshedding puts severe pressure on our ability to ensure that we meet the regular water demand in our municipal area. Reservoirs do not always have enough time to refill to appropriate levels and this may lead to low water pressure or an interruption in supply.

An appeal is herewith made to reduce water usage to mitigate the effects of load shedding: • adopt a general water-wise lifestyle • take shorter showers • don't irrigate gardens with municipal water • use greywater or borehole water where possible • limit toilet flushes.

Stellenbosch lies roughly 50 km to the east of Cape Town and is - after the Mother City - the oldest town in South Africa.

The 900 square kilometres municipal area is internationally renowned for its beautiful environment, many places of interest, wine farms, street cafes, restaurants, quality wines, historical buildings and excellent educational institutions.

The major portion of the area is utilised for agriculture (mainly wine production) and it includes the major towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek as well as settlements such as Klapmuts, Koelenhof, Kylemore, Johannesdal, Pniel, Kayamandi, Cloetesville, Ida’s Valley, Jamestown and Raithby.
