1 February 2018 marks the start of Level 6B water restrictions in Cape Town, and residents have been asked to use no more than 50 litres of water per day.
According to the City, more than 60% of residents are still not saving enough water. The new daily water consumption target is 450-million litres per day as Day Zero is set at 16 April. Households that use 6 000 litres of water or more a month will be subject to a punitive tariff.
The City of Cape Town will introduce level six water restrictions in January.
Mayoral Committee member for water and utilities Xanthea Limberg says this is in response to national government imposing further instructions on the province.
