REDUCE WATER DEMAND & RE-USE WATER
The City of Cape Town has approved Level 6B water restrictions, effective from 1 February 2018 until further notice. A person is allocated 50 litres of water per day – whether you are at home, work, gym or holiday, the allocation is 50 litres per person per day.
The critical task is to reduce the demand for water, so that the available supply last longer. The water you do use, ensure it is used more than once, reuse it.
The water restrictions are going to be around for a while so settle into the routine. Saving water in your everyday life is easy. All you need to do is make small changes and adopt a general water-wise attitude to every thing you do.
If you are planning to go off the grid, please take note of sections 56 and 57 of the City of Cape Town Water By-Law of 2010, (read with the Draft amendment) regarding approval by the Director. (See also the City’s link)
