Residents across the Mother City are delighted with the recent bountiful rains which have done their job and increased Cape Town’s dam levels significantly, bringing them above the long-anticipated 60% mark.
As of July 11, overall dam storage was at 61.1% and all dams across the board had levels above the 50% mark, with Berg River even reaching 90.2%.
Cape Town’s lowest dams are also doing well with Theewaterskloof currently standing at 51.4% and Wemmershoek 52.8%.
Locals and residents across the city are excited and happy to see water running on Table Mountain again, as well as along canals and rivers leading to the dams following the well-received downpours.
The Department of Water and Sanitation has gone so far as to announce that Cape Town is set for the rest of the winter on into the summer months, as is the country as a whole.
