De Lille: Delayed 'Day Zero' due to bolstered water saving, additional sources
Cape Town Mayor Patricia De Lille says 'Day Zero' has been pushed back to mid-May because of increased water saving by residents and additional water sources.
De Lille announced that the Mother City is guaranteed municipal water until 13 May.
The two month extension is based on the current rate of water consumption, she explains.
De Lille says water collected from the Atlantis Aquifer and the Molteno Reservoir has contributed to the push back.
She says the City maintains its call for residents to use no more than 87 litres per person per day.
On 'Day Zero', residents will have to collect water from 200 designated collection sites identified by the City.
De Lille has thanked Capetonians for saving water and has encouraged them to continue to do so.
We have to report more frequently on our plans and preparedness to the people of Cape Town.Patricia de Lille, Cape Town Mayor
Thanks to all Capetonians, we've reduced our consumption and the demand.Patricia de Lille, Cape Town Mayor
