Today (15 January 208) the City launches its water map and calls on all Capetonians to paint Cape Town green with their water saving efforts. We thank all of our water savers who are working hard to avoid Day Zero
which is estimated to kick in on 22 April 2018. Some 54% of our consumers are saving water to avoid Day Zero. We need absolutely everyone to come on board because the prospect of queuing daily for an allocation of 25 litres per person is a reality and we must do more to avoid it at all cost. Day Zero comes when our dam levels reach 13.5% and most taps will be turned off.
