The City’s Directorate of Water, says Capetonians may soon see a downward adjustment in their water tariffs.
The Directorate says the recent above-average winter rainfall has seen the City’s dams reach their 100% capacity, for the first time in several years.
This increase in dam-levels may see a relaxation of water-tariffs and restrictions, which have been in place since a severe drought hit the Mother City a few years ago.
Mayoral Committee member at the Directorate, Xanthea Limberg, says tariffs are currently at their second-lowest level, with a decision to possibly lower tariffs, to be made in the next few weeks.
Cape Town dam levels increase to 100,8%
The total capacity of dams supplying the Cape Town metro increased from 99,5% to 100,8% between 28 September and 4 October 2020, a 1,3% rise from the previous week.
