INFOGRAPHIC: Level 6 water restrictions

By Isabelle Coetzee

According to the City of Cape Town’s Day ZERO Dashboard, the taps will be turned off on 12 April based on last week’s consumption.

Following this, residents will survive on approximately 25-liters of water which they can pick up from one of 200 collection sites across the city. An expected 20 000 residents will queue at each site every day, and it will be open 24/7. 

Both the South African Police Services and the National Defense Force will be present at these sites to maintain order. 

There are, however, restrictions on where the water will be turned off. The City of Cape Town has assured residents that medical facilities and dense urban populations will still receive water after day ZERO. 

But what can residents do to prevent this from becoming a reality? 

On 1 January level 6 water restrictions were implemented by the City of Cape Town, and residents need only follow the law to prevent day ZERO from arriving. 

To simplify the new water restrictions, we have put together the below infographic based on this information:
