The City of Cape Town says it will begin introducing intermittent water supply in different areas of the city if consumption does not decrease.
Member of the mayoral committee (MMC) for utilities Xanthea Limberg says even though consumption has been dropping week on week, it's still not at the required level of 700 million litres a day.
With dam levels currently at about 24. 2%, MMC Limberg estimates that there are about 99 days of usable water left.
"Everyone is incredibly grateful that we received some rain, but the rainfall that we received is still not substantial enough. It has assisted a little, but not substantially enough and therefore water saving efforts will have to continue, water restrictions will remain in place and the City of Cape Town will continue with lowering its water pressure."
