Most residents are continuing to use water sparingly. This is according to data from the City of Cape Town.
The latest water map for July shows that a fairly consistent number of households have been awarded a green dot on the city’s water map.
A total of 397 184 households achieved green dot status in July 2018, compared to 400 538 in June. As of July 2018, 78,1% of all households were using less than 10.5kl a month.
Mayoral committee member for informal settlements, water and waste services; and energy, Xanthea Limberg thanked the residents for their efforts.
“Off the back of these latest results, the City again extends thanks to the majority of residents who have made sacrifices for the good of the City as a whole. We applaud every one of you who has resisted the temptation to relax your efforts even during these cold, wet conditions we are experiencing. Data reflects however that the majority of our residents understand that continued water conservation, even after substantial rainfall, is necessary to provide a buffer in case drought conditions return in the coming years,” said Ms Limberg.
