Save water this summer

Residents are reminded that water restrictions are in place in all Kouga towns.

At present, the dams that feed Kouga with water are only at 30 % capacity, with little prospect of major rainfall over the hot and dry summer months.

The Churchill dam is at 13, 58 % of capacity, while the Impofu dam is at 51,71 %.

The Kouga dam is at a mere 13 % of capacity, with farmers having to cut water consumption by 60 %. This has a knock on effect on job and food security.

The Loerie dam is almost full at 90 % but is a small dam and doesnt materially impact the overall water crises facing Kouga.
