The average dam levels in the Western Cape has risen to 64 percent. This double the average levels from last year. The Theewaterskloof dam – the largest in the province – is now at 56 percent, while dams feeding the City of Cape Town are currently standing at 74 percent. Last year this time, it was 37 percent. Parts of the province is still in the grips of a crippling drought. The Gouritz River catchment area in the Karoo region is currently at an average of 20 percent. Provincial Local Government Ministry spokesperson, James-Brent Styan, says they remain hopeful that levels in that region will rise. “We remain concerned about the Karoo region where the average dam levels stand at 20 percent but that region tends to be a summer rainfall area and it has relied on ground water for quite some time. We want to continue to urge people to continue to save water despite the improved conditions. We are heading to a summer season where the demand is expected to pick up again.”
