Cape Town is running out of water
Cape Town, South Africa is running out of water. The city has been struck by severe drought and there is enough water for just 100 days.
Just like Sao Paulo in 2015, citizens are asked to conserve and reduce their water supply. Kevin Winter, lecturer at the University of Cape Town Environmental and Geographical Sciences:
“We can’t see any rain on the horizon. And right now, in terms of dam storage levels, we’re probably approaching the ‘100 days left of storage.
Dams around Cape Town
Dams around Cape Town are just 42.5 percent filled, but they could drop to as little as 20 percent in the next few months if the city doesn’t take drastic water conservation measures.
Salty sea water causes damage to vegetation
Cape Town city spokesman Layne explains how this water is obtained: “When we use helicopters for water bombing, those helicopters obtain their water from reservoirs, dams and in extreme cases from the sea because using salty sea water causes damage to vegetation and also corrodes the mechanism inside the buckets used for water-bombing.
