Dam levels best in years – Bredell

The latest average dam level for the Western Cape is 66.2% (2018: 63.1%), a slight decrease from last week. City of Cape Town dams are on average 83.6% full.

The level of the Voëlvlei Dam is on 89,6%.

Anton Bredell, the minister of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning in the Western Cape, says 2019 has been another good year for rainfall over the largest parts of the province.

“With a few exceptions, we are a lot better off than we have been in years. Our greatest concern remains with the Karoo regions and northern parts of the West Coast where severe drought continues, especially in the agriculture sector, where it is felt most harshly.”
