CITY OF CAPE TOWN 14 MAY 2018 STATEMENT BY ALDERMAN IAN NEILSON, ACTING EXECUTIVE MAYOR

Proposed water tariffs reduced following public input, review and discussions 

Since the tabling of the City’s draft budget for 2018/19 in March, further examination of the budget proposals by City officials and councillors has led to a reassessment of the budget proposals for the Water and Sanitation Department. The overall increase in the Department’s budget requirement has been reduced from 26.96% to 19.9%. This has been achieved primarily by rephasing the New Water Programme, including the savings which will result in the current financial year.

Read full details on City Council Info page.

DAM LEVELS ARE NOT FILLING AS HOPED AND WATER USAGE IS GOING UP AGAIN

Continued savings must remain part of our long-term strategy to avoid Day Zero (if it doesn't happen now then it will in 2019) See latest report on the Water & Environment page AND also the report on what the De-Salination plants are producing.
