The Department of Water and Sanitation has informed the public that the country has enough water in storage to sustain it through the dry winter months.
The Department’s spokesperson, Sputnik Ratau, says according to a weekly report we should have enough water to last us throughout the winter season.
The Department, however, urges consumers to continue to use water sparingly as the country may run dry if the precious resource is used negligently.
The report indicates that for the past two weeks the country has maintained stable dam levels compared to the same period last year.
Ratau says South Africa has entered a hydrological cycle that ushered in the cold and dry winter in the hinterland.
