Cape Town now faces dry taps by July 9 20.2.2018 General News
Residents of drought-stricken Cape Town received good news today when city officials said they now face losing piped water to their homes by July 9 -- a month later than last forecast. But Capetonians are not yet out of the woods. If drastic consumption reductions are not achieved by so-called "Day Zero" -- the last day of normal water supply -- people will have to queue at 200 standpipes for daily rations of 25 litres (6.6 US gallons). The city, which attracts millions of tourists every year, has enforced strict waste controls including prosecuting homeowners who use significantly more than the current 50-litre daily limit. "The Groenland water transfer and the reduction in our weekly average demand has had a dramatic impact on the Day Zero date," said deputy mayor Ian Neilson in a statement, referring to a recent transfer of water from a region that had experienced good rains to South Africa's parched second city. "Today I urge the residents of Cape Town not to ease up on their ...
