Cape Town, South Africa's water supply has decreased even further than predicted, pushing up the estimated date when water taps could turn dry.
Dam levels in South Africa's Western Cape province fell to 25.3 percent on Monday from 26.6 percent the previous week, and from almost 40 percent a year ago, according to data from the department of water affairs.
The city has declared April 12 as Day Zero, nine days earlier than previously announced. Here, he tells us what life is like when you have just 50 litres of water a day.
The Democratic Alliance, South Africa's main opposition party, runs both Cape Town and Western Cape province.
When levels drop to 13.5%, the city of four million people will be forced to queue for daily rations of 25 litres from 200 water collection points - not even enough for a two-minute shower.
Mayor Patricia de Lille implemented a water rationing regime late previous year that required residents to cut use to about 13 gallons a day.
A typical shower uses 15 litres per minute while a standard toilet consumes up to 15 litres per flush, according to WaterWise, a South African water usage awareness campaign. Despite our urging for months, 60 percent of Capetonians are callously using more than 87 liters per day, " de Lille said last week, foxnews.com reported.
"It is quite unbelievable that a majority of people do not seem to care and are sending all of us headlong towards Day Zero".
"The city is installing thousands of water management devices on the properties of high users and ensuring that we better our record low overall water loss percentage of 16% as compared to the national average of 36%", Neilson said.
Meanwhile, the provincial Cabinet has resolved to take whatever steps are necessary to recover the money from the national government to cover the cost of the current water crisis interventions. We have been conducting rigorous oversight of the city and reporting to them on it.
According to the deputy mayor, the city has ongoing desalination, aquifer and water recycling projects aimed at providing additional water but these "will not provide sufficient supply to help us avoid Day Zero this year".
