TOGETHER WE CAN AVOID DAY ZERO
At present the Western Cape is experiencing a devastating drought. To counter the short-term effects of the drought and the possibility of running out of water, the City has put in place a number of initiatives to increase the supply of water and make provision for extreme water shortages.
In the event of what the City of Cape Town refers to as ‘Day Zero’, there will be available water for tourists and locals’ critical needs.
We have put following into action:
- We’ve emptied all our outside jacuzzis as of 25 August 2017.
- We’ve removed all bath plugs from our suites as we are encouraging guests to shower instead of bathing. We will be replacing the plug with a little rubber toy and if guests’ insist on bathing they can bring their toy to Reception and we will give them the bath plug.
We are appealing to all guests to be understanding with regards to this and assist us in saving water.
‘Day Zero’ is a projected date that is entirely dependent on current rates of water consumption: if all stakeholders adhere to the required water savings target, ‘Day Zero’ can be avoided.
Much like a local, tourists need to treat this scarce resource with the utmost respect.
