Combined dam levels drop below 19%

20 January 2021

There has been a 0,4% drop this past week in the combined levels of the supply dams that provide Kouga with water.

"We appeal to residents and holiday-makers to continue using water wisely," said Kouga Executive Mayor, Horatio Hendricks. 

He said that saving water needed to become the "new normal" for everyone in Kouga. 

"The drought has not yet broken and we have to continue our efforts to save water if we are to navigate safely through this difficult time." 

The current water restrictions prohibit, among other, the use of hose pipes and the filling up of swimming pools with municipal water.

Water leaks can be reported through the municipality's Link Powered by Vodacom app. The app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play of App Store or go to
