Whether you live in Cape Town or are just vis­it­ing the Mother City, we at Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge urge you to save as much wa­ter as you can.

As the wa­ter cri­sis in Cape Town has reached level five, Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge is do­ing ev­ery­thing it can to con­trib­ute to the so­lu­tion, not the prob­lem. What does Level Five Mean?

As the prov­ince moves into the Sum­mer months, tougher mea­sures have to be taken in or­der to pre­serve wa­ter. Level five wa­ter re­stric­tions mean that if your house­hold does not cut wa­ter us­age by the ap­pro­pri­ate amount, you could be sub­ject to a hefty fine.

The City of Cape Town urges every­body to:

• Cut your wa­ter use to less than 87 litres, per per­son, per day;

• Use mu­nic­i­pal drink­ing wa­ter only for es­sen­tial wash­ing, cook­ing, and drink­ing pur­poses, and only use in­doors;

• Check and fix all leaks on your prop­erty;

• Limit house­hold con­sump­tion to 20 kilo­litres per month.

What is Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge Do­ing? In an ef­fort to save wa­ter, the shower fa­cil­i­ties at the Cape Town Do­mes­tic lounge will no longer be avail­able un­til fur­ther no­tice. Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge clients should ex­pect to see sig­nage in all bath­rooms as a re­minder to save wa­ter.

As a busi­ness, Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge will con­tinue to save as much wa­ter as pos­si­ble be­hind the scenes, day to day.
