Although progress can be seen in terms of saving water, it is minimal.

So says spokesperson of the City of Windhoek, Lydia Amutenya.

“The outcome of the Central Area of Namibia (CAN) workshop will determine if the target consumption per person will be lowered. At the moment, the target consumption per person per day is still 90 litres.”

She believes that with continuous awareness, “the majority if not all residents will soon realise the importance of saving water,” she said, adding that the impact of the drought is evident throughout the country,

Furthermore, residents are warned that they should take water restrictions seriously.

“We are in the process implementing the Water Marshal Program for public buildings as an additional measure and we are confident that we are becoming more resilient against the drought.”

Unfortunately the program will only be fast and effective if all stakeholders do their share.

She said that the CoW would only be able to give information regarding the capital's water supply after the workshop concluded on Thursday evening.

“In brief, the CAN workshop outcome will pave the way for the coming rainy season,” she said.
