If every person in Cape Town could limit themselves to 50 litres of water per day from now until the end of June, we can avoid Day Zero. Wynberg has come to the party and is saving up a storm – we expected no less.
Here are some resources to help us all throughthe next few months. If you want to add to the list, please send your contribution to the Wynberg Residents and Ratepayers Association.
- The City’s Think Water page include the latest dam levels, the documents you may need to apply for exemptions, water-saving tips, etc.
- Water-saving tips from residents
- Beat the drought: tips for a beautiful garden (Note: This article was published in summer 2017 before the latest severe water restrictions)
- If you need more water than prescribed by the current quotas (for instance if your household exceeds four people), you can print and complete this form: Application to increase water quota
- Maximum household water usage guide
- New water and sanitation tariffs
- The City’s water-use map shows how well Wynberg (including your household) is saving water. Just remember that the map is about 6 weeks behind, and that complexes and buildings who share a water meter, are not included on the map.
- The WWF publishes sensible and helpful information in its Wednesday Water Files.
- How far can 50 L per day go? See the City’s poster.
- See the City’s progress on finding alternative water resources.
