City of Windhoek on warned residents that the continuous exceeding of weekly water targets could lead to possible water rationing

The City of Windhoek (CoW) on Wednesday warned residents that the continuous exceeding of weekly water targets could lead to possible water rationing.

CoW Corporate Communications Officer Lydia Amutenya in a press release explained that NamWater is only able to supply Windhoek with a portion of the city's required, projected water demand per week.

Amutenya said the rest of the water must be sourced from the water reclamation plant and the Windhoek aquifer and continuously exceeding the target is not sustainable.

Water restrictions were enforced on 01 July 2019 and residents were advised to manage their consumption within the applicable restrictions to achieve the water saving target.

'(Despite these warnings) the high water consumption charges remain in place,' Amutenya noted. She further pointed out that other restrictions, which include the washing of vehicles at home, remain in place.
