Big news: Cape Town’s dam levels smash through the 50% mark

We’ve done it, Cape Town.

The city’s dam storage levels have breached the 50% full mark after the weekend’s cold front swept through the region. This comes after Monday’s report stated that dams were 48.3% full.

The latest numbers reflect the gains made within the last 24 hours, which makes these figures all the more remarkable.

As of 3 July 2018, dam levels are officially at 50.3%.

Both the Berg River Dam and Wemmershoek Dam are above 80% full, while the Steenbras Upper Dam is at 101.4%. The Voëlvlei Dam gained 2.6% in a single day. The Theewaterskloof (2.1%), and Steenbras Lower (2%) also saw increases between 2 and 3 July.
