The actions being taken and considered as ‘Day Zero’ looms for Cape Town

As dam levels drop and water becomes even more scarce, Cape Town is racing against time to deal with the worst drought in the city’s history. Over the past few weeks, Capetonians have been hurtling towards Day Zero, when the City of Cape Town has warned that water to households will be cut off. If people continue using water at the current rate, it says there will not be enough water in the system to maintain normal services and the taps will run dry. With alternative water sources not yet ready, and with little chance of rain, the only solution is to go all out to save water.
