Some Cape Town residents lose their green dot water usage status
Although there was a slight drop in the number of green dot properties in the water map for July 2018, most residents are still committed to saving water reports the City of Cape Town.
The City congratulates them for maintaining their efforts through the rainy season. This good water-saving performance means that a moderate relaxation of restrictions is now being considered, it says.
The latest water map for July shows that a fairly consistent number of households have been awarded a green dot on the City’s water map. A total of 397 184 households achieved green dot status in July 2018, compared to 400 538 in June. As of July 2018, 78,1% of all households were using less than 10,5kl/month.

The city explains that data should be interpreted with caution. The map simply indicates water consumption for free-standing houses, and is not necessarily an indicator of compliance with the 50l/day limit currently in place
