Level 1 Water Restrictions now in effect

The municipality has announced that it will lower water restrictions from Level 3 to Level 1 with immediate effect. The decision to relax the restrictions was based on the slight increase in rainfall, better storage capacity and reduced consumption.

The welcome relaxation of the restrictions was announced by Mayor Mark Willemse during the Mayoral Committee meeting of 6 March.

Level 1 water restrictions allow:

  • for the watering of gardens for one hour 3 days a week;
  • for the use of hosepipes for gardening and other purposes, and the use of irrigation systems from 18h00 to 19h00 during December to May (Summer) and 17h00 to 18h00 during June to November (Winter), as follows:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays – residents with even street numbers;

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays – residents with odd street numbers; and

  • that residents still obtain permission from the Director: Technical Services before filling swimming pools and undertaking maintenance.

Residents and businesses must take note that we are still experiencing a drought and that responsible consumption to protect our natural resources must become our way of life.
