How many days of water does Cape Town have left?
Using our recent consumption as a model for future usage, we're predicting that the Cape's dam levels will reach 10% on the
10th of August, 2018.
The City of Cape Town has defined 'Day Zero' as the day when dam levels reach 13.5%, and Phase 2 of their Disaster Plan kicks in. They're predicting that day won't occur this time around, however, our matching prediction stands at the 3rd of July, 2018.
Their forecast factors in some rainfall in the interim, whereas we only answer the question of how many days our current supply will last for, without trying to incorporate volatile long-term climate forecasts.
