Next Level: The City of Cape Town imposes heightened water restrictions
From 1 February 2018, the City of Cape Town has imposed level 6B water restrictions. This means 50 litres of water per person per day may be used in a household consisting of 4 people.
The Theewaterskloof dam is critically empty. The City of Cape Town is doing everything in their power to get residents to cut back on water usage. If usage does not drop significantly, Day Zero will come closer and eventually the City will be forced to shut off taps.
Day Zero is scheduled for 16 April 2018. If the residents of Cape Town cut their water usage to 50 litres a day, Day Zero can be avoided. If they don’t cut their water usage, the municipality will shut off taps, set up around 180 water points around Cape Town, and residents will have to queue for 25 litres of water per person per day. Households consuming more than 6000 litres per month will face hefty penalties. Boreholes and well points also need to be registered. Click here to register a bore hole or well point.
Day Zero is a reality, the day will come where we no longer have the luxury of opening our taps and having water come out.
