Most major dams in the Western Cape continue to show good increases in water levels thanks to winter rains that continue to fall.
The Theewaterskloof and Voëlvlei dams increased by more than 5% in the past week.
The Provincial Minister of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, Anton Bredell, says the average level of dams in the province is at 66.5% with some areas like the city of Cape Town better off still.
“We hope to continue to see further rain and snow, in order to see further increases in dam levels in the coming months.”
