Level 3 water restrictions loom for City of Cape Town

Rashied Khan, Chief Director of Department of Water Affairs in the Western Cape region, commended the City of Cape Town for implementing water saving measures.

The City imposed Level 2 water restrictions from 1 January 2016 to date because the dam levels are lower than normal.

Khan lays some blame on the fact that the city is old structurally and so has had a number of burst pipes and leakages. The authorities need to look into fixing these worn pipes in order to save water.

There is water wastage, we need to reduce and apply more of our resources and funding to replace burst pipes, water meters and get correct readings.
