Water Restrictions – weekly dam levels

Weekly dam levels

Resources

The state of the main dams supplying the Cape metropolitan area as compared to the five previous years is reflected in the table below. Because the sizes of the dams vary, the best indicator is the overall percentage stored compared to the total accumulated capacity. This is the statistic shown in the bottom line of the table below.
It is important to bear in mind that the time to save water is when there is water to save, and we should therefore not become complacent about our water saving efforts. Cape Town will never be in the position of having sufficient water to waste, and we must continue to be vigilant
