"The municipality has restricted its community to twelve Kilolitres per household per month and completely cuts the water supply every thirty-six hours"

The town of Beaufort-West in the Central Karoo, South Africa is currently experiencing severe water scarcity. Dam levels are at their lowest in living memory, and the main supply dam looks to be near bone-dry. The town is currently without any surface water sources as its supply dam is completely empty. It is at present, solely reliant on groundwater from boreholes, donations of water in tankers and bottles from individuals and organisations who heed the call to provide water. Every drop of water is seen as a blessing since the local Gamka Dam dried up two months ago. The ongoing drought in Beaufort West has forced municipal officials to enforce water shedding. The municipality has restricted its community to twelve (12) Kilolitres per household per month and completely cuts the water supply every thirty-six (36) hours. Tankers then supply the households with wash water and five (5) litres of drinking water per day. No vehicle washing, irrigation of gardens etc. is allowed.
