No Day Zero for 2019 but How Secure Is Cape Town's Water?

Cape Town Executive Deputy Mayor Alderman Ian Neilson has said that the dreaded Day Zero - the day when most of the taps will be turned off - will not happen in 2018 or 2019. However, the announcement comes as, depite promising winter rains, the city remains in a state of drought with level 6B water restrictions still in place.
