The Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs says average dam levels in the province…

The Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs says average dam levels in the province have decreased slightly as the province enters the summer season. It is currently at just below 64%, compared to below 36% at the same time last year. There is however still concern for the Karoo region with average surface water levels below 19%. Meanwhile, combined dam levels in city of Cape Town are standing at more than 73% of storage capacity. Spokesperson James-Brent Styan says despite significant improvement, residents must still apply responsible water usage: “We want to urge continued caution and continued wise usage of water. We are going into a very hot summer season where the demand is expected to pick up and we want to point out the fact that two years ago in November 2016 dams were on average 60% full more or less at what we are at now. Following 2016 of course, we entered into a very dry period, so we want to ensure that we conserve the water we have.”
