Cape Town’s dams are now, on average, half-full, and we still have to wait for the snow to melt – #WaterCrisis

The latest information says the metro’s dams are now 50.3% full, thanks to the heavy rains.

Steenbras Upper dam is completely full to the brim, while both the Wemmershoek and Berg River dams are sitting comfortably at the 80% mark.

But overall, the provincial picture remains around the 40% mark.

It’s up to the national government to say when water restrictions may be lifted, which may only be later this year.

But the City wants to phase this process in sooner and bring down tariffs at the same time.
