Cape Town to relax water restrictions from 01 December 2018!
The City of Cape Town is set to relax water restrictions in Cape Town from the current level 5 to level 3. As of 01 December 2018, the water usage target in the Mother City will be increased from 70 litres to 105 litres per person per day and the daily collective consumption target will increase by 150 million litres to 650 million litres to ensure that water conservation efforts remain in place. This decision to lower restrictions comes after a meeting between the South Africa's National Department of Water and Sanitation and the water users of the Western Cape Water Supply System, namely the agricultural sector, Western Cape Government, municipalities and the Cape Town metro regarding the water assessment for the year ahead.
