Information on Western Cape drought inaccurate

On January 9, Tourism Update published an article to update the current water crisis situation in Cape Town, where it was reported that Swartland Municipality was experiencing Level 3 water restrictions, according to the Western Cape Government official website.

However, Swartland Municipality confirms that the area is experiencing Level 5 restrictions and has been since November 1.

When Tourism Update contacted the Western Cape Government to query the inaccurate information, a spokesperson revealed that the department was aware of the issue and that the information for the majority of the municipalities might be out of date. 

Updated information is only expected from next week as the individuals responsible for the updates are not in the office at the moment. 

An article containing the correct information will be posted as soon as it can be established and verified.
