Dam Levels at 60%

Dam levels increased by 1,3% to 60,1% of storage capacity over the past week and have passed the 60% mark for the first time since 2016.

The average water consumption for the past week rose from 519 million to 527 million litres per day.

The City of Cape Town is encouraged by the milestone that has been reached and thanks its water users for continuing to use as little water as possible in an effort to preserve the water that is in our dams. This remains a priority effort to ensure that we build a buffer against the summer months ahead.
