CITY OF CAPE TOWN 8 OCTOBER 2018 Dam levels show only slight increase amid warmer weather


Level 5 water restrictions and tariffs are in place and were lowered from Level 6 as an interim measure to provide some relief to residents. For now, Cape Town must do its very best to remain in the lower 500 million litre per day usage band until another limit is imposed by the National Department of Water and Sanitation. This is likely to happen in December.

 

The permitted usage under Level 5 restrictions is 70 litres per person per day.

Invasive Alien Vegetation is a serious problem in South Africa, where it usually has a negative impact on our scarce water resources.

The trouble is that 'Ugly' is missing because invasive alien plants often look attractive, which is why people plant them!
