CAPE TOWN – The City of Cape Town says that from July, residents will be paying more for water.
The city has proposed a 19% hike for water and sanitation tariffs. It’s hoped this could help compel the public to use less water.
The municipality is also set to keep restrictions in place for some time.
The City’s Xanthea Limberg says: “The department has been working on creating a new set of tariffs. Tariffs are only approved once a year when the budget has been approved, so those two things need to speak to each other. We are looking at implementing new, stricter restrictions as well as the tariffs.”
