Capetonians will soon be restricted to less than 100 litres per day #Level4B

The City of Cape Town has announced that it will be implementing even tougher Level 4B water restrictions. This is to further reduce the amount of water being used by residents.

City of Cape Town Mayco member Cllr Xanthea Limberg says they are in a process of finalising what Level 4B will entail.

She says Level 4B will look at further restricting potable water usage for essential purposes and will push for residents to further reduce the 100 litre per day threshold.
