City lowers its water tariff: How does this affect you

Cape Town’s water tariffs have been a contentious issue. In a few short years, we have gone from the worst drought to face our city and a potential ‘Day Zero’, to our dams being almost 100 percent full. And civic organizations have called on the City of Cape Town to reassess the water tariff structure.

Well this afternoon we heard that the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee made a decision to lift water restrictions in Cape Town and to move to the lowest tariff, from 1 November 2020. The tariff has already been approved by Council as part of the set of tariffs for the City’s 2020/21 budget.

In tonight’s show, we unpack this further.
Online we have:
-Lesley Ashton, Greater Cape Town Civic Alliance

-Alderman Xanthea Limberg, Mayco member for water and waste
-Brett Herron from the Good Party
