Cape Town Hits Level 5 Water Restrictions

Melissa Cohen
2017-09-06
With Level 5 water restrictions in place, Capetonians need to adhere to the new regulations that have been implemented. We investigate.
Cape Town Mayor, Patricia De Lille has announced that the city will up water restrictions to a Level 5. This is in response to the high levels of water consumption and the lack of supply taking place in the city. De Lille's aim is to put more pressure on water management among the community to ensure that water is distributed correctly.
“There is now a new emphasis on capping excessive water use at the domestic household level and placing additional restrictions on the commercial sector," explained the mayor.  A waterless car wash is possible! Here's how!

How Much Water Is Really Left? 

According to the City Of Cape Town, as of the 4th of September, there is only 315 439 megalitres of water left. This is about 35.12% of the total dam capacity. This has put Cape Town under pressure to ensure that this does not run out. Level 5 water restrictions will remain in place until further notice.

This is what Level 5 restrictions look like...

 

How Will This Impact You?  

Authorities will be clamping down on both the residential and commercial sectors. Commercial properties need to lower their water consumption. De Lille requires that they reduce their consumption by 20%. As for households, residents are limited to a maximum of 20kl/per month. This means that each person may only use 87 litres of water daily. The mayor has warned Cape Tonians that if they exceed the limit, hefty fines will be distributed between R5 000- R10 000. According to the mayor, as of last week, consumption stood at 599 million litres per day. She is aiming to decrease that to 500 million litres.
How much water do you use a day? We found out!

What Can I Do To Save Water? 

Are you wondering how you are going to stick to your 87 litre limit? Here is an idea of how you can use your limit so that you get the best out of it. Not only that, but you might even save a few extra litres! That extra minute in the shower or keeping the tap running while you brush your teeth, could really make all the difference! Think today, save water for tomorrow!
