CAPE TOWN – The average dam levels in the Western Cape are currently at 60%.

Dams feeding the City of Cape Town have decreased to 70%. Last week dams were at 71.8%.

The provincial Environmental Affairs Department says the major dams in the province are also down by about 1% per week.

The Theaterskloof Dam is at 55%. Last week it was 56% and last year it was at 23.2%.

Spokesperson James-Brent Styan said: "The [Water] demand continues to increase, we're going to the summer season and we're expecting a lot of visitors again. Temperatures are growing and, therefore, we want to urge that water is used as sparingly as possible. "
