Our region’s water usage has climbed rapidly to pre-drought levels.

Meteorologists are already predicting that an El Niño climate system is likely on its way back this winter. This could bring about a below-average rainfall season, which is particularly problematic for the Western Cape that receives the bulk of its rainfall in winter.

The dam levels of the 6 major dams in the Western Cape Water Supply System that feeds our region and surrounding municipalities currently stands at around 62% of capacity – nearly 25% lower than this time last year.It is important that we adopt a waterwise lifestyle and that we always keep in mind that we live in a water scarce country.

By working smarter with water, reporting leaks to the municipality immediately and using water sparingly, we can save water and bring usage down.
