Thanks to recent rainfall, Western Cape dams are filling up.

Most of Western Cape’s state-owned dams were on average 64% full with a 12% increase last year. Last year this time, residents in the Western Cape were nervous around the threat of day zero. The Department of Water and Sanitation said that Western Cape’s largest dam levels had seen an increase since the start of winter.

According to Eyewitness News Water and Sanitation department spokesperson Sputnik Ratau said six of the provinces largest dams reached a capacity of 80%. He added the Department remains concerned around the slow recovery of dam levels in the Southern Cape and Karoo region.
