The City of Cape Town has announced that residents will be able to consume more water as of 1 December.
The City will ease water restrictions from Level 5 to Level 3.
This means that Capetonians can use 105 litres a day, up from the previous 70 litres a day.
This decision follows on from the National Department of Water and Sanitation’s latest water assessment.
Water tariffs in the Mother City will also be lowered as a result of this move.

Level 3 water restrictions were last enforced in Cape Town two years ago.
In October this year, the City dropped restrictions from Level 6B to Level 5, after dams reached almost 75% capacity.
Capetonians have been encouraged to continue with a water-wise approach while the city recovers from the drought.
