CAPE TOWN: The prolonged winter rainfall that has continued beyond Spring Day has helped recharge the dams supplying the City of Cape Town and the greater Western Cape.

City of Cape Town dam levels have increased by 4 percentage points to 74%, while the Western Cape’s supply dams are up to 64%. Last year, at this time, the levels across the province were at just 35%.

The average water consumption for the past week is up slightly from 505 million litres per day to 511 million litres per day, the City of Cape Town said. Video: Lubabalo Poswa/ANA
