Watching Cape Town’s dams fill from the water’s edge may be as boring as watching paint dry, but to see the numbers slowly increase on a weekly, nay, daily basis, is quite exciting.

On Monday, we published a piece detailing the rapid improvement the city’s dams have seen over the past two months. Well, as of 20 June, there’s more happy news to report.

On Wednesday, the City of Cape Town issued a mini-update to dam levels which revised its 18 June totals. The City’s six major dams are 40.3% full. That’s more than a 2% increase in two days.

The Theewaterskloof Dam is just under 30%, the Voëlvlei is well on its way to 34%. The Berg River Dam is now 65% full, and the Wemmershoek is just 0.8% under 70% capacity.

Bouts of sunshine and rain are forecast for the remainder of the week and into the weekend.
