NATIONAL NEWS - Government urges communities to intensify water-saving habits as dam levels are dropping due to hot conditions and lack of rain.
Behavioural change in water consumption can contribute immensely to improving the water situation.
The public is urged to monitor their home water meters so that leaks can be detected and fixed quickly.
Other tips include taking shorter showers and shallow baths, ensuring all taps are closed tightly, reporting leaking pipes in streets, only using the washing machine with full loads and re-using grey water wherever possible.
