Water consumption in the drought-stricken Nelson Mandela Bay metro has increased significantly, putting pressure on an already thin system. The metro’s residents and businesses were consuming roughly 60 megalitres more per day. The metro’s target demand was 230 megalitres per day, but the current consumption is 290. Two dams – Churchill and Impofu – collectively have about six days of water left.
