45% Dam Level Crisis

www.MyPE.co.za: The
Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality once again calls on all fellow citizens
of Nelson Mandela Bay to step up their efforts and commitment to water
conservation. With the high water consumption over November and
December 2009, the dams have dropped to an alarming 45%. Water
restrictions are now in place and if no further rain falls Port
Elizabeth will run
out of water within 10 months.

The restrictions were first introduced in October 2009 in order to stem
the tide and promote water conservation by all residents and businesses
in Nelson Mandela Bay. Residents are requested to seriously change
their levels of consumption since our current dam levels are very low
and if no significant rains fall in the catchment areas, our water
reserves will be depleted in 10 months time.

Major Storage Dam Levels
suppling Nelson Mandela Bay (as at 11 January
2010):

  • Kouga –
    44,8%
  • Churchill – 25,9%
  • Impofu –
    52,7%
  • Loerie –
    40,1%
  • Groendal –
    48,5%
  • Combined Average – 45,3%

Residents can also assist
the Municipality in saving water by
diligently reporting all water leaks via:

  • The 24 hour call free number: 0800 20 5050 or
  • The newly established e-mail address waterleaks[at]mandelametro.gov.za

Eds Note:
Those guys who are still filling their pools up at 1:30 in
the morning and watering their gardens will soon find themselves being
added to the MyPE
Rogues Gallery
. Send your images of water miscreant
wasters to alan[at]mype.co.za.
