The City of Cape Town has intensified its enforcement of level 3 water restrictions in an effort to curb water wastage.
Law enforcement officials executed a so-called water blitz in parts of the city last week, with 45 officials inspecting the Tygerberg-Goodwood area.
Officials followed up on tip-offs and inspected various households, issuing spot fines and checking proof of registration for boreholes and well-points
One resident was fined R2 000 for hosing down a concrete surface with potable water.
Inspections will continue across Cape Town and the City has a target that no more than 800 million litres of water is used per day in the metro.
The City has so far issued 383 notices of contravention and 225 notices to appear in court.
If you are caught in the act defying water restrictions, City officials may issue a spot fine of up to R3 000.
Repeat offenders can face up to R10 000 penalties and possible jail time, if convicted.
