CAPE TOWN: City of Cape Town’s Mayor Patricia de Lille has given residents a glimpse on Thursday into what is to come when day zero arrives.

“As part of my commitment to communicate more frequently on the City’s plans and preparedness, today I want to bring you into my confidence and tell you precisely what will happen if we reach Day Zero.
I am pleased to announce that due to the efforts of the City and the residents of Cape Town, Day Zero has moved to 13 May 2018. Many Capetonians have heeded the call to reduce their consumption dramatically and we thank you.

 The City is also doing its bit, as we bring additional supply online from February onwards with more new water coming online in the months thereafter, Day Zero will be pushed further. We have already brought additional water from the Molteno Reservoir in Oranjezicht and the Atlantis Aquifer, with two million and five million litres per day from these sources respectively”.
