2019 – Another drier than average year

Cape Town water consumption

The City of Cape Town has cautioned residents to keep an eye on consumption levels over the coming weeks. Water consumption for last week was up to 657 million litres/day, exceeding the current 650-million litres/day limit.
Dams supplying Cape Town are down 1,0% from the previous week sitting at 79,7% of storage capacity.
2019 has been another drier-than-average year, and it is important that Cape Town residents remain aware of their water use, especially as we approach the summer months.
