Print   Send to a friend

On January 9, eTNW published an article entitled Western Cape water crises update, where we reported that Swartland Municipality was experiencing Level 3 water restrictions, according to the Western Cape Government official website.

A reader (ANNE) commented on the same article published by Tourism Update (eTNW's sister publication), saying: “Swartland Municipality is on Level 5 restrictions and not level 3. Just wondering how accurate is the info?”

Toursim Update conducted an investigation with the following results:

Swartland Municipality confirmed that the area is experiencing Level 5 restrictions and has been since November 1, 2017.

When Tourism Update contacted the Western Cape Government to query the inaccurate information, a spokesperson (speaking on the condition of anonymity) revealed that his department is aware of the issue and that the information for the majority of the municipalities may be out of date.

He said, “We are unable to update the information until next week as the individuals responsible for the updates are not in office at the moment. I cannot provide definitive information, however, my understanding is that the majority of the municipalities are on level 4 water restrictions and higher, with minor exceptions.”

Tourism Update apologises for the inaccurate information and will publish an article containing the correct information as soon as this can be established and verified.
