The City’s Mayoral Committee
Member for Utility Services, Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg, would like to thank
and congratulate Cape Town residents for pulling together in this time of water
need as a look at figures over the past three months reveals efforts that are
truly heartening. Residents have succeeded in saving 10% on their consumption.
Meanwhile, the City is pleased
with the progress being made following the recruitment of 20 EPWP workers to
assist with enforcement of water restrictions. These workers have been on the
ground for approximately three weeks and have assisted in both creating
awareness and issuing notices and fines for contraventions.
“I would like to thank Cape Town residents for making the sacrifice necessary
to achieve the saving”, Said Ernest Sonnenberg.
“It shows a sense of civil responsibility of which we can all be proud”,
“However we must not take this as sign that we can relax our effort”,
“We are far from out of the roots and it is crucial that we continue
with a 10% reduction in water consumption”, He added.
“Thanks must also be given to our new EPWP workers who are assisting our
water inspectors by being our eyes and ears on the ground for enforcing the
water restriction while most Capetonians are pulling their weight, there are
unfortunately some residents who still feel they are exempted from the efforts”,
