The Department of Water and Sanitation has declared that South Africa has enough water to last until the next rainy season, but only if citizens continue to use this precious resource with care.
The Western Cape received a lot of rain in winter. This has seen the province’s dam levels bounce back from nearly empty to very acceptable levels. Dams serving the City of Cape Town are above 80% of capacity.
The rest of the country receives summer rain and, according to the department, dams across South Africa are in a good state. As of this week, dams in the Eastern Cape are at 54,4% of capacity. – Fresh Plaza
