Limpopo dam levels improve slightly


Limpopo dams have shown a slight improvement after the recent rainfall. According to the Department of Water and Sanitation’s weekly status of dams report, the Limpopo provincial water storage improved slightly this week, from last week’s 58.0 percent to 58.6 percent. 
This is a further improvement from last year when water levels were at a low of 50.7 percent during the same period.
“One of Limpopo’s major dams; De hoop situated at Steelpoort has somewhat improved from 86.8 percent last week to 89.5 percent this week,” said departmental spokesman Sputnik Ratau.
He said this is a considerable rise from last year’s 78.3 percent. 
Sekhukhune’s Flag Boshielo dam, located in Olifants, in the Polokwane Water Supply System is sitting comfortable at 88.0 percent, a massive increment from last year’s 53.3 percent,
this a moderate decline from last week’s 88.8 percent.
“A total of four dams in the province are sitting healthy at 100 percent and above and they are; Mogoebaskloof,Mutshedzi ,Rust De Winter and Vlugkraal .”
Ratau said that the residents need to continue to use water sparingly.
“The recent heat waves that were experienced in the province do not seem to have influenced most of major dams in the province although the same cannot be said about dams such as Glen Alpine and Doorndraai dams that are critically low at 9.0 percent and 9.1 percent respectively.”
He added that in spite of moderate improvement that has been recorded in some dams, the Department of Water and Sanitation is calling on residents to use water
“The Department is in the process of completing a number of projects that are aimed at ensuring adequate water to communities.”
