Water department worried about current water usage
Gauteng and several provinces have been struggling in hot conditions over the past few days and such is likely to occur on Sunday afternoon
The Water and Sanitation Department has been bothered over the current usage of water in the country.
Gauteng and several provinces have been struggling in hot conditions over the past few days and such is likely to occur on Sunday afternoon.
The department mentioned that the Vaal Dam is likely to reduce lower than the 30% mark this week.
It said it is quite unusual that the water level is at that percentage for this time of the year and dams are losing water a lot.
However, spokesperson Sputnik Ratau said water restrictions were not on the cards just yet:
“Some kind of consideration might be needed to work together with municipalities and water boards to see whether we can be able to continue until we have rain without imposing any restrictions. At the moment, we are aware that a few municipalities are imposing localised restrictions. The provincial or national department level hasn’t come to that decision of imposing restrictions.”
