The City of Cape Town has urged residents to use less water during prolonged stages of load shedding to prevent water supply limitations in higher-lying areas.

The City issued the warning following the move to stage six load shedding, which impacts water supply operations in Cape Town, notably in higher-lying areas where water needs to be pumped to get to properties.

Lol... we have been having it. In our town some neighbourhoods are left up to two weeks without water at a time. For the biggest part, some days we have water others not. They are unable to pump water from reservoirs as I understand it.

But, who knows? Perhaps this is not even loadshedding related. Perhaps even collapsing water infrastructure maintained the same way Eskom was maintained...
