Current Stage

Responsible Use

Notice to all users of Municipal potable water: || Current Dam Level: 99.3% | Rainfall Received for November: 10mm. | Contraventions should be reported to the 24-hour number 086 124 8686.

We request that Good Water Management Habits and Practices apply.

The restrictions shall apply within the boundaries of the Bitou Municipal. Residents and visitors are encouraged to continue with the ‘good water management habits and practices’. These restrictions are required to achieve water savings as required due to the drought conditions.

Our water resources are depleting rapidly and the water level at the Roodefontein Dam and the flowrate of the Keurbooms River are decreasing gradually by the day. 

Saving water has become a priority for the Bitou Municipality as the town battles with the drought.

"Water is a scarce resource use responsibly.”

RESPONSIBLE USE

With the recent good rains the Province had received, the Roodefontein dam reached the 101% level. Coupled to this, the average production of water for the months of July until now was on average around 7.9Ml/d against a target usage of 8.28Ml/d under Stage 1.

Given the above, it would be appropriate for Council to announce a relaxation of the current water restriction Stage 1 to “responsible use”.

Change in the applicable tariff might apply

More information on the matter will be communicated
