The recent rains brought relief to the drought situation in the Jeffreys Bay region with the Kouga Dam now at 44 %.
The dam was at 6 % of capacity before the rains.
Kouga Dam supplies the towns of Hankey and Patensie with water.
According to the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality the total combined capacity had risen to 47.2%, a huge difference when compared to figures released on the 3 September when the combined dam levels were just under 17%.
The Churchill Dam is at 1oo %, while Impofu’s level is 31,52 %.
The Loerie Dam is also at 100 % of capacity.
Residents are still being urged to use water sparingly.
