This week, for the first time in 18 months, the dam levels pushed past the much anticipated storage capacity of 60% and the good news continues as levels keep rising.

Storage officially increased from 60.1% to 60.7% today, and more rain forecast for the weekend is expected to replenish the water supply even more.

South African Weather Services released a warning today, notifying residents to be weary near coastal areas due to high seas, gale winds and heavy rainfall that could cause flooding as well as very cold conditions.

Although weather is expected to be particularly rough this weekend, hopes are that it will greatly benefit the catchment areas.
