Halve your water use to help avoid Day Zero

Day Zero is currently set for April 2018. Our collective action now can help push it out until the rainy season.

It is every Capetonian’s responsibility to use as little water as possible per day across all activities e.g. at home, work, school, gym, prayers or other.  Unless we all radically reduce our water use, we have just over 10 weeks of water left before we queue for water.

Level 6B water restrictions will be in effect from 1 February, with the following impact:

  •  Residents to use 50 litres per person per day; across home, work, school or elsewhere.
  • Commercial properties need to reduce usage by 45% compared with the corresponding period in 2015 (pre-drought)
  • Agricultural users need to reduce usage by 60% compared with the corresponding period in 2015 (pre-drought)
  • New tariff for commercial and industrial consumers is expected to move to R40 per kilolitre (excl VAT). See City’s website or media for updates.

Draft Water Amendment By-law comment period extended until 31 January 2018
