Dam Level Updates
The dams in and around Cape Town form part of the Western Cape Water Supply System, which is an integrated and collectively managed system of dams, pump stations, pipelines, and tunnels. In addition to servicing Cape Town, the system supplies water to towns in the Overberg, Boland, West Coast and Swartland areas, and provides irrigation water for agriculture.
Current Dam Water Levels – 12/2/2019
|Capacity when full||12/2/2019|
|Berg River||130 010||79.0|
|Steenbras Lower||33 517||56.8|
|Steenbras Upper||31 767||70.5|
|Total Stored Ml||898 221||513 965|
Because each dam size is different, the best indicator of overall dam water levels is the overall percentage stored compared to the total accumulated capacity. This statistic is shown in the bottom line of the table.
