‘Only 19 days of water left in Knysna’
In the latest water update from the Knysna municipal manager Kam Chetty said: “The Oyster festival did have an impact on Knysna’s water resources.
“The back-up plan is to complete the bulk water system (pipe line that feeds water from the river to the storage dam) as soon as possible.
We are very close to moving to level 4 water restrictions. Currently the Akkerkloof dam is at 30% of water supply, which equates to 19 days of water. Weekend rain of 23mm increased the flow of rivers slightly.”
