National government has approved new water restrictions for parts of the Western Cape in a bid to save 20 percent on usage.
The water and sanitation department has made the announcement in Cape Town this afternoon.
Western Cape dam levels remain under pressure following lower than normal rainfall since last year.
The department’s Rashid Khan says, “The national government department of water and sanitation has imposed a 20 percent water restriction in the province; applying more in the western part of the Western Cape.”
All consumers in the Berg water management area and those in some parts of the Breede water management area must adhere to these restrictions with immediate effect.
