Despite the rains Cape Town has received from a recent cold front, the dam levels have seemingly remained the same.

Naturally after days of wet weather, one would expect dam levels to increase. Much to our dismay, the levels hardly budged.

Overall dam levels have been teetering around the 58% mark for weeks now, with latest dam levels showing the slightest increase from the 58.2% of last week to 58.8% this week. An overall 0.6% increase was recorded.

The fullest dams are Steenbras Upper at 99.6% and Berg River at 74.5%.

More rain is on its way to Cape Town this week, with forecasts predicting five consecutive days of downpour. An approaching cold front will bring rainy weather from Thursday, June 25.

Dam levels have not been above the 60% mark for a while but this week’s forecast could change this.
