The average level of dams supplying the Cape Town Metropole with water has over the past week dropped by 1.5%. The City of Cape Town says the level of the city’s dams on average is now standing at 59% of storage capacity, which is still much better than in the corresponding time last year when the local authority was battling the effects of the worst drought in almost a century. Water consumption has during this time increased by 12 million litres per day to 614 million litres. Officials have again called on Capetonians to continue using water sparingly as the drought is not over yet. Unexpected light downpours were measured in the Peninsula at the weekend with Somerset West getting about 11 millimetres of rain on Sunday. At the weekend drought stricken parts of the Western Cape had welcome relief with about 50mm at Montague, 38mm at Touwsriver, Ceres and Citrusdal. 40mm, and Robertson 18 millimetres. Other areas where heavy downpours were measured include the Little and Central Karoo, Hex River Valley and the Koue Bokkeveld.
