The week’s dam levels have just been released by the City of Cape Town and a 0.6 percent decrease since last week has been recorded. Our average daily production has gone up 20 litres, even further away from our 500Ml/d target.

Aquifer drilling started at Steenbras Catchment over the weekend, where contractors conducted exploratory work for drilling into the Table Mountain Group Aquifer (TMGA) for additional water. The aquifer drilling is part of the City’s commitment to bringing additional water supply, while still urging Capetonians to continue their efforts in saving.

After a warm weekend and 29 degree Sunday, the week ahead is looking slightly cooler with some showers expected today and tomorrow. The weather will begin to warm up again closer to the weekend.

Residents are still strongly advised to adhere to level 5 water restrictions which are in place.
