It is reported that the Western Cape’s dams are on average 35.7% full (or empty).
The dams in Cape Town are 53.6% full. Now, is there a panic? Do we need more water at this stage?
Maybe we do. So if we don’t get enough rain soon will we have a serious problem? Well, what do the citizens out there think? My point is, isn’t it exactly for this reason that the CoCT embarked upon the idea of constructing and installing desalination plants? So, if there happen to be very low dams, aren’t the plants supposed to kick in? Are they functioning? Are they ready?
