Dam levels are mostly stable in BCM

Dam levels across BCM remained mostly stable this week, with only minor changes recorded by the department of water and sanitation (DWS).

This matches the trend seen across the Eastern Cape, with the provincial level increasing by only 0.4 points to 55.4% as of Tuesday April 12.

Bridle Drift saw the biggest drop, going from 30.3% capacity last week to 29.7% per the latest recordings.

It was followed by Laing, which saw a drop of 0.4 points. However, this still leaves it the second best performing dam in the area and currently sits at 99.1% capacity.

Wriggleswade remains to be the worst hit dam in BCM and dropped a further 0.2 points this week, leaving it sitting at a worrying 20.2% capacity.

There was some good news, however, with two dams recording increases in levels.

These were Nahoon, which saw a 0.2 point increase from last week to end at 38.6%, and Rooikrans, which was sitting at 99.8% capacity.

Gubu was the only dam which saw no change and remains at 85.7% capacity.
