DEAR CAPE TOWN – THE City of Cape Town is doing a mass roll-out of the installation of water management devices, in order to restrict high water users in the city and stretch the city’s current water supply.
At a media briefing this week, mayor Patricia de Lille explained that the city is targeting the 55000 households and people who are defaulting on the stipulated daily allocation, through the installation of water management devices.
The devices are set to 350 litres per day, per property.
At a demonstration on the water management device earlier this week, Malungisa Pontia, head meter manager for the city, said the device will be installed for high users at a cost of R4500, while indigent users will have the installation done for free.
The City will install about 8000 devices per month
