Cape Town: "Day Zero" has been pushed back to 09 July 2018!

According to a new statement by the City of Cape Town, "Day Zero" has now moved from 04 June 2018 to 09 July 2018 due to a weekly drop in dam levels of only 0.5% (as compared to a 1.9% drop in 2014). This week's reduced water consumption as well as the Groenland water donation to the Steenbras Upper Dam has helped pushing back the date. 

On "Day Zero" taps in homes and businesses in Cape Town will be turned off until the rains come. The city's (at least) four million residents will have to line up for water rations at 200 collection points.
