Water Restrictions


... As News24 reports, Cape Town's dams have just managed to squeeze past the 'danger zone'. The danger zone is when the dams are below 65% at the end of the rainy season - and the dams are now just a smidgeon past this at 65.9%. The City of Cape Town is in talks with the national Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) about easing up on the severe water restrictions. Origin will continue with its policy of no water births until the City of Cape Town announces that the national DWS has allowed the level of restrictions to be lifted. With the continuing rains in the Cape we are hoping that this will be sooner rather than later, and shall keep you all informed!
