  • Day Zero 2019 'highly likely' for Cape Town, say climate scientists

    It is highly unlikely that Cape Town's catchment area will get the above average rainfall it desperately needs this year to break one of the city's worst droughts on record, a climate scientist has said.

    And if there is not above average rainfall this year, Cape Town is unlikely to avoid a Day Zero in 2019.

    Experts have said that the catchment area needs at least four consecutive months of above average rainfall in 2018 to fill the dams sufficiently, to see Cape Town and surrounds through next summer and to avoid a Day Zero in 2019.

  • Western Cape dam levels drop even more

    Cape Town - The latest average level, for dams across the Western Cape, is 20.83% - compared to 30.09% for the same time last year - MEC for Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning Anton Bredell said on Monday.

    "At this stage, the water situation in our 30 municipalities is relatively stable, thanks to continued interventions as well as a concerted effort to save water by citizens and business.

    "However, the agriculture sector remains a major concern for us in the provincial government. We will continue to step up and provide support to this important sector, which is bearing the brunt of the drought."

  • Two Eastern Cape towns to see 'Day Zero' sooner than Cape Town

    Cape Town - While Cape Town is expecting Day Zero on 16 April,

    two farm towns in the Eastern Cape might see Day Zero even sooner.

    Despite heavy rain and flash floods that recently took place, the

    Kouga dam is at a critically low level - individually‚ at 9.95%.

    According to Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB), the severe drought in

    Hankey and Patensie in the Gamtoos Valley prompted the

    Kouga Municipality to introduce strict water rationing.
