CAPE TOWN – The City of Cape Town has enough water to last until August or September at current consumption levels, an official has said.

Any rainfall in the coming weeks would change this projection, but there was “significant uncertainty” over the rain forecast for June and July, mayoral
committee member for water and waste services Xanthea Limberg said in written replies sent to News24 on Wednesday.

“As such, saving as much water as possible remains key in case our water reserves have to be stretched over summer 2017/18,” she said.

Western Cape Premier Helen Zille announced on Monday that she had declared the entire province a disaster zone in a bid to avoid taps running dry. Economic Opportunities and Agriculture MEC Alan Winde said the decision was taken because winter rainfall had been below expectation.

“We are being told that we should’ve had a lot more rain in this season already,” he said.
