Cape Town – Minister of Water and Sanitation Nomvula Mokonyane met with Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille on Wednesday to discuss efforts to avoid "day zero" during the current drought.
Mokonyane urged De Lille and Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning MEC Anton Bredell to address water losses due to leaks to further prevent unnecessary water losses.
The city has targeted a daily use of 500 mega litres (ML), but is currently at 618 ML a day.
SOUTH AFRICA Cape Town to double price of water in two years.
The drought is about to whack Capetonians in the pocket‚ doubling the price of water in the next two years.
The City of Cape Town’s draft budget‚ tabled at Wednesday’s council meeting‚ proposes a 27% rise in water tariffs from July 1.
And it will get worse in 2019‚ with a 30.45% increase‚ followed by a 22% rise in 2020/21.
The net effect is that the price of water will more than double between July 1 this year and July 1‚ 2020.
Xanthea Limberg‚ the mayoral committee member for water‚ waste and energy‚ told a media briefing the drought was to blame.
“Much of the increased tariff will be about recovery from 2017/18 [when revenue from water reached only 73% of the target as consumers slashed usage]‚” she told a media briefing before the council meeting.
“It is also about funding augmentation schemes to adapt to the impact of the drought.”
With consumer price inflation at 4%‚ other proposed tariff increases all outpace it: rates at 7.2%‚ electricity at 8.14%‚ sanitation at 26.96% and refuse removal at 5.7%.
The mayoral committee member for finance‚ Johan ver der Merwe‚ said all the increases were based on the city council’s CPI projection of 5.5% for 2018/19.
The council's total budget for the new financial year is R49.1-billion.

City of Cape Town ups price of water to reduce consumption 2018-02-06
According to Deputy Mayor Ian Neilson, the new tariffs on a total monthly bill (Level 6 tariffs) (including VAT) for non-indigent persons are: Consumption
Price 6kl R179.58
20kl R1 555.56
35kl R6 685.56
50kl R20 365.56
One kilolitre is 1 000l.
Indigent people get up to 6kl free per month.
"In line with Level 6 drought measures, the February 2018 water and sanitation accounts of our water users will reflect a tariff increase," said Neilson.
He said the city makes no profit on water sales.
"We will still cover the cost of basic water for our indigent residents, but for the rest of our water users, these tariff increases are unavoidable. The highest users will face the greatest increases," Neilson said. The increase comes as the city is in an "unprecedented situation" as it tries to reduce water consumption due to the drought, and to keep pushing Day Zero back.
Day Zero is the day people will have to start queuing for a ration of 25 litres of water each, because there will not be enough water available to put through the municipal water system.
It is currently thought that it will occur on May 11 after a slowdown in agricultural water use provided a reprieve.
