The City of Cape Town plans on providing 300 million litres of water daily from new water sources by 2030.

Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Sanitation Zahid Badroodien says the metro’s water plans are well on track.

The multi-billion-rand project is part of the City’s plans to stop taps from running dry.

Most dams in Cape Town are above stable levels. However, parts of the province are still experiencing drought with little to no rainfall.

Badroodien adds that 96 percent of the municipality’s water comes from surface water in the City’s dams, while only four percent comes from groundwater.
