South Africa: Fears Over State of Nelson Mandela Bay s Water Lifeline As Its Biggest Supply Dam Falls to 7 Percent

[Daily Maverick] Nelson Mandela Bay s combined dam capacity has fallen to below 20% and its biggest supply dam has dropped to 7% as the municipality considers tighter water restrictions. While the municipality has always insisted that a water canal bringing water from the Gariep Dam will be the city s lifeline if the dams run dry, fears are being now raised over the stability of this structure that failed catastrophically in 2017, but was given only a temporary fix.
