Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality welcomes the rain that has made a difference at the catchment areas.
Reports have indicated that in some areas more than 100 mm of rain and up to 200 mm have been recorded.
The overall impact is as follows:
Churchill Dam 78.13%
Kouga Dam 13.63%
Groendal Dam 44.12%
Overall ave dams levels = 29.99%
As can be seen that the average dam levels have improved, but the NMBM by no means are out of this disastrous situation, especially thinking of the amount of rain that has fallen.
The NMBM will be monitoring the true impact of the rain over the next few days as significant runoff is still taking place.
We encourage all to remain vigilant and save water.
