Rain in the Western Cape!

Welcome rain and snow has graced the Western Cape this past weekend

The OD Office would like to acknowledge and thank all those who had the drought-ridden Western Cape in their thoughts and prayers.
This past weekend brought relief in heavy rains, and snow on the mountains. According to  the Government website, www.dwa.gov.za/Hydrology/Weekly/Province.aspx, dam levels in the Western Cape have now crept to over the 41% mark. This in in contrast to the 23% of last year. The people of the Western Cape owns a big debt of gratitude to the agricultural community, who's willingness to reduce water usage by 60% saved the province from running out of water in a  Day Zero senario.
Despite the favourable weather, Level 6B water restrictions still apply in the province. This means, amongst other restrictions, that residents are restricted to a daily limit of 50 litres of water or less per person whether at home, work, school, or elsewhere.
Please see some pictures of how Bishops deals with the water crisis under 'Photos', and scroll to "The Bishops Trust - Capital Projects".
