Dam Levels as at 16th April

Week by week our dam levels fall lower and lower and this week fall below 24% to just 23.99%.

Hopefully, some winter rain will bless the Nelson Mandela Bay dam catchment area for dam levels continue to fall.

Dam Levels as at 3rd April

Dam levels have again fallen in the past week in spite of the rains we experienced which seemed to do little more than green up our gardens. Obviously there is no need to remind readers to do all they can to save water. Old habits are sometimes hard to break but that 10-minute hot shower is simply a no-no! Levels have dropped from a collective 72143 Ml to 68699 Ml since 19th February.

As can be seen from the graphs below the water situation is not improving  with dam levels collectively below 25%, a slight decrease from last month. With the Easter holidays ahead of us we must make sure visitors are aware of the serious water shortages we are facing and they must assist us by saving water wherever possible.

Dam levels as at 19th March

In spite of the wonderful rains we have had in St Francis, it seems the catchment area is not benefitting as there has been a slight decrease in overall dam levels from last week. No need then to remind everyone to do all they can to SAVE WATER!
