The level of the Kouga Dam has dropped to below 7%. It has, therefore, become necessary to implement water rationing in the towns of Hankey and Patensie. From Monday, 6 August, the towns will only have water for a few hours a day. See the full schedule here.

Should you wish to report a service fault, please contact the Kouga Call Centre on 042 200 2200. The call centre is open seven days a week from 7:30am to 7pm. Outside these hours faults can be reported at 042 291 0250 or 042 200 8330. Alternatively, click here to download the Link app for easy fault reporting.

As drought conditions prevail, residents are asked to limit their usage to 50 litres of water per person per day. Click here for the latest dam levels.

Welcome to Kouga Local Municipality

The Kouga Local Municipality is located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, west of Nelson Mandela Bay, and forms part of the Sarah Baartman District Municipality. It consists of nine towns, namely, Jeffreys Bay, Humansdorp, St Francis Bay, Cape St Francis, Oyster Bay, Patensie, Hankey, Loerie and Thornhill, as well as various smaller settlements and agricultural nodes.

While Kouga has traditionally been characterised by economic activities largely focused on tourism and agriculture, the area has been positioning itself as one of tne energy hubs of South Africa. Two wind farms are already in operation at Jeffreys Bay and Oyster Bay, and more are in the pipeline.

Kouga is also home to Thyspunt, one of the preferred sites for  a new nuclear power station to serve South Africa's growing energy requirements.
