Windhoek Already Using October's Water


Windhoek residents are already consuming October’s water, a month ahead in water usage, at a time when the central areas of the country face a water crisis.

This was revealed by Windhoek Municipality spokesperson Joshua Amukugo at a media briefing yesterday. He was responding to a question on why the municipality closed a public swimming pool, with a sign indicating that the closure is ‘to save water’.

NamWater’s weekly dam bulletin of August 31 shows that the Omatako Dam is emptier than last year during the same period, when it was 6.1% of capacity.
