City names and shames top 100 water consumers

1

On Monday the City of Cape Town released the City’s top 100 water consumers. In a bid to quell continued water wastage, the City named and shamed roads within the metro that reflected the highest water consumption. Surprising to many residents, three Cape Flats roads, Haywood Road in Crawford, Manenberg Avenue in Manenberg, and Boundary Road in Lansdowne took the top three spots.

Coming on the back of months of urging residents to use water responsibly, the City of Cape Town says dam levels in the Western Cape are dropping drastically. This despite calls on members of the public to use water responsibly. Major dams stand at 33 percent full.

Mayoral spokeperson, Zara Nicholson says the daily water consumption is at about 840 million litres per day. She says this figure is above the suggested saving consumption levels of 700 million litres per day.

In response to the water crisis, Cape Town Mayor, Patricia De Lille is due to outline the City’s medium to long-term water resource plans on Tuesday. She will also talk about the current drought situation and supply and demand interventions.

Meanwhile, the City has thanked residents for their water-saving efforts. Nicholson says that while the persistent heat cannot be controlled, residents can control their use of potable water for non-essential purpose.

1. Haywood Road, Crawford – 702 000 litres 51. Brockley Road, Muizenberg – 229 000 litres

  1. Re: Bishop’s Court, Constantia and Newlands, above
    I bet the Bishop’s Court, Constantia and Newlands ‘offenders’ are consulates and embassies! Sprinklers there water the gardens continuously.
    Also named are numerous businesses, such as soft drink companies, that are wholly dependent on municipality-supplied water!
    Cape Town Mayor, Patricia De Lille and the City of Cape Town Water Section are passing the pipe around it seems!!!
