Garden Route dam drops to 45%

Emergency tariffs and tougher water restrictions will be effective in George with immediate effect as the town’s main water supply, the Garden Route Dam, dropped to 45% today (2 August 2017.) The new Section 2C restrictions limit household consumption to 15 kilolitres per month.

George Municipal Manager Trevor Botha said while Section 2B water restrictions had been in place since June 1, water usage figures had dropped only minimally (from 30 megalitres per day in May and June to 28 megalitres in July) and little rain has fallen. “As the dam has now dropped to 45% the Municipal Drought Management Policy determines that Section 2C restrictions come into effect. We hope emergency tariffs will have the desired effect of reducing consumption,” said Mr Botha.

Households using more than 15 kilolitres a month will be charged extra per kilolitre on an upwards scale for exceeding the monthly quota. Businesses, entertainment industries and other users will be required to reduce consumption by 15%, may be fined and will face additional charges of 1.5 times their tariff.

 

The implications of Section 2C restrictions include:

  • Households shall be limited to 15 kilolitres per month (flow reducing devices will be installed where limits are exceeded).
  • Other users, businesses and entertainment industries must reduce consumption by 15% of their average use over the previous six          months. This includes commercial car washes and other businesses dependent on municipal water.
  • Large industries must reduce consumption by 10% of their average use over the previous six months.
  • Gardens may only be watered using water cans or buckets, any time of the day.
  • The irrigation/watering of ALL sportsfields using municipal water is prohibited.
  • Washing of vehicles with a garden hose is prohibited. Buckets are allowed.
  • Cleaning of any outside surfaces area using a water hose with municipal water is prohibited.
  • Filling up of swimming pools with municipal water is prohibited.
  • Where own water from a borehole or reservoir is used ‘OWN WATER’ signage must be displayed, and officials may ask for proof of such.

            Emergency tariffs will have the following implications for households:

 

 

WATER USE PER MONTH HOUSEHOLDS NORMAL RATES 2017/18 HOUSEHOLDS RATES IF SECTION 2C IS IN PLACE
0-6 kilolitres Free Free
6-12 kilolitres R13,74 per kilolitre R13,74 per kilolitre

Damvlak daal tot 45% - onmiddellike noodtariewe en strenger beperkings vir George

Noodtariewe en strenger waterbeperkings is onmiddellik van toepassing nadat die stad se hoofwaterbron, die Tuinroete Dam, vandag (2 Augustus 2017) tot 45% gedaal het. Die nuwe Afdeling 2C-beperkings beteken huishoudings mag net 15 kiloliter water per maand gebruik.

George Munisipale Bestuurder Trevor Botha het gesê dat Afdeling 2B-waterbeperkings reeds sedert 1 Junie in plek is, maar dat waterverbruik minimaal gedaal het (vanaf 30 megaliter per dag in Mei en Junie na 28 megaliter in Julie) en dat min reën geval het. “Aangesien die dam nou tot 45% gedaal het, stipuleer die Munisipale Droogtebestuursbeleid dat Afdeling 2C-beperkings in werking tree. Ons hoop die noodtariewe sal die gewenste uitwerking hê en verbruik verminder,” het Mnr Botha gesê.

 

Indien huishoudings meer as 15 kiloliter water ‘n maand gebruik sal hulle per kiloliter teen ‘n opwaartse skaal meer vir water betaal. Besighede, vermaaklikheidsplekke en ander verbruikers moet 15% waterverbruik sny, kan boetes kry en sal addisionele kostes van 1.5 keer hulle spesifieke tarief moet betaal.

 

Die implikasies van 2C-beperkings sluit die volgende in:

  • Huishoudings word tot 15 kiloliter per maand beperk (vloeiverminderingsmeganismes sal geïnstalleer word waar waterverbruik oorskry word.
  • Ander verbruikers, besighede en vermaaklikheidsplekke moet verbruik met 15% sny, gebasseer op die gemiddelde verbruik oor die voorafgaande ses maande. Dit sluit karwasserye en ander besighede wat van munisipale water afhanklik is in.
  • Groot nywerhede moet verbruik met 10% sny, gebasseer op die gemiddelde verbruik oor die voorafgaande ses maande.
  • Tuine mag slegs met ‘n gieter of emmer natgegooi word, enige tyd van die dag.
  • Die natmaak van ALLE sportvelde word verbied.
  • Die was van voertuie met ‘n tuinslang word verbied. Emmers word toegelaat.
  • Die skoonmaak van enige buite-oppervlak met munisipale water word verbied.
  • Die opvul van swembaddens met munisipale water word verbied.
  • Waar eie water van ‘n boorgat of watertenk gebruik word moet ‘n “EIE WATER”-kennisgewing duidelik sigbaar wees, en bewys daarvan moet gelewer kan word op aanvraag van beamptes.

 

Noodtariewe vir huishoudings sal soos volg toegepas word:

 

WATERVERBRUIK PER MAAND HUISHOUDINGS GEWONE TARIEF 2017/18 AFDELING 2C TARIEF VIR HUISHOUDINGS 2017/18

Izintlu zamaxabiso ethuba lokuxakeka kunye nemiqathangao eqatha yaseGeorge njengoko idama lehlele kuma-45%

Izintlu zamaxabiso ethuba lokuxakeka kunye nezithintelo zamanzi eziqatha ziya kuqalisa ukusebenza eGeorge kwangoko njengoko indawo enikezela ngamanzi enkulu yedolophu, iGarden Route Dam, yehlele kuma-45% namhlanje (2 EyeThupha 2017) Imiqathango emitsha yeCandelo le-2C ilinganisele usebenziso lwamakhaya  kume kwi-15 lekilolitha ngenyanga.

uMphathi kaMasipala waseGeorgeu Trevor Botha uthe ngexesha imiqathango yeCandelo le-2C imiselwe kususela ngomhla woku-1 EyeSilimela, amanani osetyenziso lwamanzi ehle kancinane kuphela (ukususela kuma-30 eemegalitha ngosuku kwekaCanzibe kunye neyeSilimela aya kuma ngama-28 eemegalitha kweyeKhala) kwaye incinci imvula ethe yana. Njengoko idama lehlele kuma-45% uMgaqo-nkqubo wokuLawulwa kweMbalela kaMasipala umisa ukuba Imiqathango yeCandelo le-2C iyasebenza. Siyathemba ukuba izintlu zamaxabiso ethuba lokuxakeka ziya kuba neziphumo ezilangazelelwayo ekunciphiseni usetyenziso.,” utshilo uMnu. Botha.

Amakhaya asebenzisa ngaphezulu kwe-15 kilolitha ngenyanga aya kuhlawuliswa ngaphezulu ngekilolitha ngeskali esinyukayo ngokugqitha kumlinganiselo wenyanga. Amashishini, amashishini okuzonwabisa kunye nabanye abasebenzisi kuya kudingeka ukuba anciphise ukusebenzisa nge-15%, bangohlwaywa kwaye baya kujamelana neentlawulo ezongeziweyo eziphindwe nge-1.5 yoluhlu lwamaxabiso abo.

Iziphumo zemiqathango yeCandelo 2C ziquka:

  • Amakhaya aya kulinganiselwa kwi-15 lekilolitha ngenyanga (isixhobo sokunciphisa uqukuqelo siya kufakelwa apho imilinganiselo kugqithiweyo kuyo khona)
  • Abanye abasebenzisi, amashishini kunye namashishini okuzonwabisa  kumele anciphise usetyenziso lwamanzi nge- 15% ye-avareji yokusebenzisa kwabo kwenyanga ezintandathu ezidlulileyo. Oku kuquka indawo ezishishina ngokuhlamba iinqwelo kunye namanye amashishini axhomekeke kumanzi kamasipala.
  • Amashishini amakhulu kufuneka anciphise usetyenziso nge-10%, ye-avareji yokusebenzisa kwawo kwenyanga ezintandathu ezidlulileyo.
  • Izitiya zingankcenkceshelwa kuphela kusetyenziswa iinkonxa zamanzi okanye amathunga nangaliphi ixesha lemini.
  • Unkcenkceshelo lwawo onke aMabala ezeMidlalo kusetyenziswa amanzi kaMasipala akuvumelekanga.
  • Ukuhlanjwa kweenqwelo ngemibhobho yesitiya akuvuvumelekanga. Amathunga avumelekile.
  • Ukucocwa kwazo naziphina iindawo ezingaphandle kusetyenziswa imibhobho yamanzi ngamanzi kamasipala akuvumelekanga.
  • Ukuzaliswa kwamachibi okuqubha ngamanzi kamasipala akuvumelekanga.
  • Apho kusetyenziswa khona amanzi avela kumngxuma wesitsala-manzi okanye kwidama , kufuneka kuxhonywe umqondiso othi ‘AMANZI  AM’ kwaye amagosa angabufuna ubungqina boko.
  • Izintlu zamaxabiso ethuba lokuxakeka ziya kuba nezi ziphumo zilandelayo kumakhaya.
