DEAR CAPE TOWN – Future Water Institute says that the levy could have the opposite effect of discouraging those who are already saving the city a lot of water.

The institute’s Kevin Winter says that this method of calculating the charge, assumes that large property owners are the ones not adhering to the restrictions.

In fact, he says it’s many of these property owners who have been saving and storing large volumes of water on their property.
