Day Zero

21 04 2018

The day the taps will be turned off

Day Zero is based on the previous week's daily consumption average of 618 Ml/day. Only if all Capetonians reduce their daily use down to 87 litres or less, and the City implements the necessary projects, will we avoid Day Zero. To find out what you can do, visit www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater
