Cape Town’s average water consumption is on the increase again. Although it is still within acceptable limits, we remind residents to keep their water-wise habits during our drought recovery period.

Please note that our water dashboard and dam level reports will resume from 7 January 2019.

Temporary suspension of Eskom load-shedding

Although Eskom has currently suspended load-shedding, residents must ensure they are prepared in the eventuality that it picks up again.

Keep these energy tips in mind:

  • Put pool pump on a timer
  • Switch off geysers
  • Switch off non-essential appliances.

Be aware of power outages unrelated to load-shedding. Consult @CityofCTAlerts for updates on scheduled maintenance outages as well as unscheduled power outages.

If a power outage is not listed, please report the fault by submitting a service request or contacting the Call Centre on 0860 103 089. Our Electricity Department will attend to the matter and restore power as soon as possible.

The City of Cape Town has spent over R13 million on the new minibus-taxi facility for commuters from Masiphumelele. Planned and built to be resilient and adaptable to current conditions, it is set to provide commuters with a safe and dignified transport hub in early 2019. The benefits to the local community have already been substantial. Over R461 000 has funded temporary work opportunities for locals and R230 000 has funded goods and services from local sub-contractors. It will be water and energy efficient, with a rooftop solar photovoltaic panel system, and a borehole, coupled with a rainwater collection system, all planned to ensure a resilient facility that the community can depend on.
