In a bid to bring down water wastage in the city, Cape town water board has finally released a list of top hundred residents who waste water in the city.

The city’s administration had last week, promised to release the identities of all customers who have been found guilty of contravention of Level 3B water restrictions as it has been warning residents to curb their use or a name and shame strategy would be used to ‘encourage’ them to play their part.

Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille‚ who lives in the suburb‚ handed over letters to households which have recently consumed between 55 000 and 159 000 litres a month.

“I warned them to reduce their consumption immediately to around 20 000 litres per month or lower‚” said De Lille‚ who announced a new crackdown on water abusers starting on Monday‚ with city dam levels languishing at 36%.

“The identities of all customers who pay admission-of-guilt fines or who appear in court regarding contravention of level 3b water restrictions will be made public by the City of Cape Town‚” said De Lille.

She also noted that in her pursuit to deal with industrial consumers who were using too much water she would allow the city’s water management board to publish street names of the top 100 highest consumers for each category of domestic‚ commercial‚ and government user who are under investigation for contravening the water restrictions will be published‚ along with the water meter reading.



Hence, in a statement released on Monday, Cape Town updated residents on the pretty dire state of water saying: “As at today, 27 February 2017, dam levels have dropped to 33%, which is 1,5% down from a week ago. With the last 10% of a dam’s water mostly not being useable, dam levels are effectively at 23%. Consumption is at 837 million litres of collective use per day, which is above the revised water consumption target of 700 million litres per day,”

The city said the average household uses about 20 000 litres of water per month, with some going as high as 50 000 litres.

“We may not have control over the weather, but we do have control over our use of potable water for non-essential purposes. Our actions can change the scenario,” said Cape town mayor Patricia de Lille.
