Western Cape dam levels have increased by nearly 2% in the past week, currently standing at a combined 74.3%. At the same time last year, the province’s dam levels stood at 82%. Dams supplying water to the City of Cape Town is currently 86% full,  compared to last week’s 84.3%

At the same time, the metro’s dam levels were at full capacity. Daily water consumption for the city of Cape town decreased to 791 million litres per day compared to 796 million litres the week before

Western Cape’s Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning MEC, Anton Bredell predicts that the province will have a hotter and dryer climate in the future due to climate change

“If we agree that the Western Cape will have a hotter and dryer climate in the future due to climate change, and if we include current population trends that see more than 100 000 people relocating to the Western Cape each year, we must do more in terms of water infrastructure.’’
