"On Friday 3 March 2017, a local disaster was duly declared and promulgated in the Provincial Gazette".
Finally the City of Cape Town is getting serious about our two year old drought!
It's good to know too that they are now targeting the highest water users and visiting their properties to issue fines. Sadly however, it's all too little too late, they should have been taking serious action six months ago.
Recently a list of Cape Town's top 100 residential water guzzlers was released and one property alone uses over 700,000 litres of water a month. In the Helderberg the top user guzzles over 230,000 litres a month. To put that into context last month we used 4880 litres.
Cape Town's dams are seriously low!
This makes for scary viewing!
