Cape Town's new level 6 water restrictions kick in

And yet the schools and golf courses are still watering every night
 
Clickbait, content-free article...

Why "clickbait"? Are there more stringent water restrictions enforced or are there not?

"Many posted links to a recent New York Times article which highlights the suggested possibility that Cape Town might be the first major city in the world to run out of water."
Bad planning or is this merely a bad "Act of God"?
 
We have had enough rainfall.
It's just terrible water management
 
huge water pipes from north to south, drop the nuclear deal russia can drop a few hydro plants on the way..

Its clickbait because the water outages are caused by broken pipes, not by shortage of water, nor anything to do with water restrictions (yet). The quoted text is not representative of the title, nor the bulk of the article.

As the saying goes: The interesting part is not news to anyone who has been paying attention, and the news part is not relevant to those not directly affected.

Thank you for the explanation. :)
 
To Cape Town residents. How do you keep your cars clean? Are there any car wash businesses in that part of SA?

Yeah the car washes are open. I think we can also use grey water to wash cars but not 100% sure about that.

Definitely can use grey water to wash cars, but best to get proof its not potable water. Installing tanks and pumps is expensive, but has been done by reputable garages.

Edit: The owner of the laundromat that I frequent was offered 100% safe recycled water by the council, but can't use it on clothes because of the 'yuck' factor...

Edit: Mods please merge! This thread is become a repitition of the other one...

Most car washes have moved to recycled or "waterless" methods. That said its not a good business to be in right now.
 
Judging by the rapid vehicle density increase on the WC roads, I suspect that the major inflow of people to the WC is at the heart of the water shortage.
 
Neither Cape Town Municipality nor Western Cape Government manages the water supply, it is all in the hands of National Government's dept. of Water Affairs, who have done less than nothing.

Neither has money which should be available from the State of Emergency declared by W. Cape government been paid by central government.

The only conclusion one can come to is that this is a deliberate strategy taken by the ANC National Government to create havoc in the Western Cape.
