South Africa’s drought-stricken Cape City pushes again ‘Day Zero’ to June four

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South Africa’s drought-stricken metropolis of Cape City has pushed again its estimate for “Day Zero,” when residents should begin queuing for water, to June four from Might 11 as a consequence of a decline in water utilization, town’s deputy mayor mentioned on Tuesday.

Deputy Mayor Ian Neilson mentioned that over the previous week, town’s water consumption has been lowered to 526 million liters per day as residents scale back utilization.

“That is the primary time that the weekly common utilization has remained beneath 550 million liters because of the metropolis’s stress administration interventions and the efforts by our residents to make use of as little water as doable,” Neilson mentioned in a press release.
