The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department has released the revised Water Outlook 2018 Report. The summary contains details on the current water system status including the latest water system figures, recent water consumption trends, as well as an overview of the City’s strategy to overcoming the drought.

Level 6B water restrictions remain in place with recent water consumption rates at 530 million litres per day, and the total dam storage levels at 56.4%. Individual water usage has been restricted to 50 litres per person per day, and non-residential users are required to reduce their total usage by 45%. 

In addition, the Water Outlook is accompanied by an interactive Dam Level Model which can be used to assess dam levels against different percentage usage by each consumer category, as well as through input of augmentation project figures in Ml/day with corresponding dates. Users can interact with the highlighted green cells to model a projected scenario and monitor resultant dam levels.
