"Use Water Only for Drinking, Bathing and Cooking"


The water crisis the City of Cape Town has been trying to avert has hit with full force, and the municipality has sounded the alarm for consumers to limit their water use to drinking, bathing and cooking calling for Level 4 water restrictions, which would entail a ban on the use of all municipal water for outside and non-essential purposes. The emergency comes as collective dam levels continue to drop – they are effectively at just over 11% capacity this week.
