The City of Cape Town's phase 1 of the disaster management plan is in full swing. The City released a statement on Monday outlining its water rationing plan.
Spokesperson for Minister Anton Bredell, James-Brent Styan says the plan is implemented as dam levels drop even further, with only 28% of usable water left.
According to the City, the implementation of the water rationing plan is likely to result in water supply being disrupted during peak water usage times in the mornings (between 05:00 and 09:00) and in the evenings (between 17:00 and 21:00) if usage is above the required levels.
Phase 1 which the City has implemented comes down to reducing water usage even further in the city as we going into a high demand season.— James-Brent Styan, Spokesperson to Minister Anton Bredell
What this means is that the entire City's pressure will be dropped even further. When this happens the flow of water out your taps just comes down and in certain area where the pressure just drops to a certain level you might have no water coming out your taps.— James-Brent Styan, Spokesperson to Minister Anton Bredell
