The weekly Cape Town dam level statistics have just been released, and we’re fairing slightly better than last week, with a 0.3% increase since last week, dam storage up to 37.8% and our average daily production down to 607Ml/d – still 107Ml above target.

As we get closer and closer to summer and the festive season, less rain is being predicted for the upcoming weeks, as well as an increase in water usage can be expected with an influx of tourists and hot weather. The week ahead is looking warmer, with no predicted rain ahead.
