Western Cape dam levels at 78.1%

The latest average dam levels in the Western Cape stands at 78.1%. Last week dam levels in the province was 79.7%.

According to the latest data as supplied by the Department of Water and Sanitation, this is significantly better than the same time last year, when the average provincial dam level stood at 67.7%. Dams supplying the City of Cape Town decreased by 1.6% from last week’s 92.3%. The metro’s dams were 87% full at the same time last year.

The Western Cape’s Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning MEC, Anton Bredell, says dam levels still look good for this time of year in the Western Cape’s hot summer season.

“The good rainfall received during the winter months are still evident in our dams throughout the Province. We are now heading into the second half of summer, and this is the time of the year when we start asking if our reserves will last until the next rain season in the coming winter. At this stage there is no reason for concern, but at the same time we cannot get complacent, and I urge you to continue using water as a scarce and precious resource.”
