Mossel Bay Municipality appeals to residents to continue to use water sparingly as dam levels continue to drop steadily.

Cognisant of the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the requirement for residents to regularly wash their hands to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the municipal Council accepted a resolution that water restrictions be put on hold until the Wolwedans dam level drops to below 50%.

In terms of the Department of Water and Sanitation dam operating rules, a 10% restriction must be applied to all residential consumers when the dam level drops below 60%.
