WATER RESTRICTIONS NOTICE NO 7

Note that this a slightly revised version of Water Restrictions notice No 7, published in this paper earlier  this week, to reflect the water tariffs both INCLUSIVE and EXCLUSIVE of VAT:

The Municipality would like to thank Metro residents for their continued efforts to save water in the City.  We do not expect major rains in the next three months (according to the South African Weather Services), which points to the drought not yet broken. Given our current usage and the legal limits imposed on water resources by the Department of Water and Sanitation, the custodian of all water resources, the following restrictions are being imposed.

Also note that the Metro, through the Executive Mayor, has declared a local state of disaster on 21 November 2019.

Financial Tariffs

In the Metro tariff structure, there are three parts that Council approves to deal with the following three scenarios:

·        Part A –Normal times

·        Part B - Applicable during times of water shortage

·        Part C - water shortage emergencies

On 11 July 2018, Council approved Water Restriction Notice No 5. Due to the severity of the drought then, the Municipality increased rates to Part C of the Tariff. Restriction 5 was revised on 21 September 2018, after heavy rains had fallen. Restriction notice No 6 (21 September 2018) then replaced Notice No 5, with the relaxation of tariffs to Part B.

In Restriction Notice No 7, which was approved on 21 November 2019 and published in this paper earlier this week, the phrase "reduced” was erroneously carried: in fact, the notice should have read that the Tariff remains at part B. This has been corrected in this notice, which also reflects the water tariffs both INCLUSIVE and EXCLUSIVE of VAT (see tariff structure below). The financial tariff will remain at Tariff B for both domestic and commercial users.
