Save Water Now

Save Water Now

The Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality is calling on its residents to use water wisely and sparingly in order to avoid a possible water crisis.

BCMM Council has approved implementation of water usage restrictions as per the Dam Operating Rules.

This is based on the latest dam figures which reveal that the main dam which supplies East London and Mdantsane, the Briddledrift dam, was recorded to be below 40 percent in the latest available data.

The latest figure of this dam as at 39.1 percent. The other dams that supplies the City are Nahoon dam, which supplies East London and Mdantsane (currently sitting at 47 percent) and Rooikrantz dam (currently sitting at 90 percent).

Buffalo City’s main reserve dam, the Wriggleswade Dam, which is managed by Amatola Water on behalf of the Department of water and Sanitation, is currently sitting at 85 percent.

However, with the main dam now below 40 percent, the City is already sourcing water its reserve, the Wriggleswade Dam.

The latest statistics below show a significant drop in dam levels in some of the main dams when compared to the same period in the previous year, which indicates that a drought situation is closely approaching the municipality if the expected rains do not materialize this summer.
