Special Assignment Sabc 3 Schedule

While the world-class city is almost running on empty, Capetonians are struggling to stave off Da...y Zero, the day the city’s water supply will have run dry. Four million Capetonians will have to queue for their 25 litres of water each per day.

While the city has been scrambling for solutions to its water supply, Capetonians have managed to reduce their water consumption to 50 litres per day. A three-year drought and the expansion of the city’s population by 80% in the last few years, with an increase in water resources of only 15%, are some of the main reasons for the water shortage. It has been announced that Cape Town's supply of water will cease in July 2018 if there is not significant rainfall.

The city was warned as far back as 2007 that it would have to find alternative water sources by 2017. The National Department of Water and Sanitation, the City of Cape Town and the Provincial Government, appear to be more preoccupied with blaming each other rather than with working together to end Cape Town’s water shortage crisis.

Is the Day-Zero warning campaign a scare tactic devised by the City of Cape Town and the Western Cape after decades of wasteful consumption on the part of the city and; has this crisis made the city more water-wise?

DO OR DRY is produced by Hazel Friedman
