    Cape Town running out of water

    Severe drought has led to extreme measures to reduce water usage, but if things don't change weather wise Cape Town will soon be out of water. I once owned a week there.

    S.A. should have thought about this before they tossed out the people that knew how to run things. Im pretty certain that if S.A. was managed by the old management team they would have taken measures like desalination to prevent this water crisis.

    So the fix is rain ? I read that SA wasn't going to getting much rain because of climate change. Maybe they should move to the USA.

    They can deny it where they are, or move here to see it's happening here too.

    I hear Paris has running water.

    Cape town's water problem has gotten better. Reservoirs were at 70% in September, 2018 and water restrictions have been reduced or ended.

    I almost thought this post was from last year. My sil and bil were on a trip last year and spent a few days in Capetown. They were worried about running out of water then.

    Thought it might be nice to update the situation in case anyone was thinking of going there.

    Some of my family went to SA on a trip to tour parts of Africa. They say the best part of this trip was Amsterdam and not really Africa.
