The official dam level stats in the Western Cape continue to rise as the first rains of the winter season fall in the province.

The six major dams in the Western Cape – the Berg River, Steenbras Lower, Steenberg Upper, Theewaterskloof, Voelvlei and Wemmershoek – all saw increases in capacity.

Down on last year

The City of Cape Town uploaded its latest stats on Tuesday, 11 June.

The latest figures show the six dams are a combined 65.5% of total storage.

That’s up from 58.9% the previous week.

A year ago the combined percentage stood at 77.3%.

Theewaterskloof, which accounts for more than 50% of the province’s total dam capacity (480 188 MI of a total of 898 221 MI) is at 62% of capacity, while the next biggest dam, Voëlvlei (164 095 MI), is at 55.5%.

Western Cape residents need no reminding of life during the ‘Day Zero’ water crisis from mid-2017 to mid-2018.
