Cape Town Faces Stricter Water Restrictions

Level 6 water restrictions have been implemented. Urban households are required to reduce water usage by 45%, and agricultural users to reduce consumption by 60%. However, individual households with more than four occupants, or people with specific health requirements, need to apply to the City for an increase in the minimum water allocated.

Theewaterskloof Dam provides more than half of Cape Town’s water.
