The Western Cape Local Government Department has welcomed the early winter rainfall which has been falling since yesterday. It says the much needed rain has assisted in drought stricken areas like the Karoo Region. The Gouritz River catchment area, which covers the bulk of the region, has seen an incease in dam levels for the first time this year. The average level stands at just over 19 percent. This catchment area has been empty for more than two years. The Department’s James- Brent Styan says, “Some very welcome early winter rain has fallen over large parts of the Western Cape, including the Karoo Region. The Gouritz River Catchment Area, which covers the bulk of the Karoo Region, has seen an increase in average dam levels for the first time this year. That’s quite exciting, but of course it’s still along way to go for the region, which remains severely affected by the ongoing drought.” Meanwhile, dams that supply Cape Town are standing at more than 52 percent. Water restrictions in the city remain at level Three. Residents are allowed 105-litres per person per day. The watering of gardens is now allowed using water efficient methods.
