Kouga region: Rain too little to break the prolonged drought

KOUGA residents and businesses have been urged to continue using water sparingly.

“Some much-needed rain has fallen in the catchment areas, but not enough to make a significant difference to the dam levels.

“This means we cannot relax yet and must continue doing all we can to save water,” cautioned Kouga Executive Mayor, Horatio Hendricks.

He said the level of the Kouga Dam had increased by almost two percent this month following some rainfall in the Langkloof catchment areas.

“The dam level was at 8,09% at the end of September. This climbed to 9,03% on Monday this week, with some further inflow expected.

“While this brings some relief, the level remains dangerously low and is not expected to increase far beyond 10%,” he said.

According to the latest information from Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, the level of the Impofu Dam has inched up from 18,55% at the end of September to 18,97% this week.

The level of the Churchill Dam has also increased, from 53,08% to 62,92% over the same period and the Loerie Dam from 29,97% to 44,84%.
