Premier Helen Zille has met with consuls-general to discuss issues relating the water crisis.
This comes as City of Cape Town officials prepare for day zero which is likely to fall on 12 April.
Zille says officials provided information regarding preparations for the day taps run dry.
“This morning we met with various representatives of the consuls-general in Cape Town to brief them on the preparations for in the possible event of day zero and to assure them that tourism, as well as other sectors of the economy, will continue. We have a continuity plan for all sectors that underpin the Western Cape’s economy.”
The City of Cape Town on Sunday announced its contingency plans for day zero.
The current dam levels for Cape Town are 26.5%. If dam levels continue to drop, day zero could be a reality soon.
When Cape Town dam levels drop to 13.5%, the city will begin to shut down its reticulation system in residential areas.
About 180 communal water collection sites have been identified which will be open for 12 hours a day.
But should the situation deteriorate further, times will be adjusted.
Each resident will be allocated 25 litres of water a day.
The city says there will be separate sections for pedestrian and vehicle access.
Water tankers will be used to deliver water to vulnerable groups such as old age homes and care facilities.
