Drought affected Karoo receives water

Temporary relief for the drought stricken areas

The Western Cape government has delivered water to the Karoo to ensure that communities there have water.

Ninety thousand litres of water was delivered to the Karoo to refill reservoirs in areas like Ladismith and Zoar that are struck by drought.

According to MEC for Environmental Affairs and Development Planning Anton Bredell, this was done in an effort to address the short term demand for water.

Spokesperson James-Brent Styan said:

“The water is sent to supplement the reservoirs; they are taking a strain in these small towns during these times of high demand.”

Water was also delivered to Prince Albert and Laingsburg.

“We want to continue urging people to use water sparingly during this period of high demand and to thank our partners in this case.”
