While there has been a significant reduction in water usage, the City of Cape Town is still not at its desired target amid dwindling dam levels.
Officials have urged residents to reduce water usage as dam levels currently stand at 46%, reports EWN's Kevin Brandt.
The City says water consumption has dropped from an average of 835 million litres per day to 829 million litres.
Despite level three water restrictions, consumption is still not at the required level.
Brandt explains that a dam in the Northern Cape town of Calvinia has dried up this week.
Level four water restrictions, which involves interrupted water supply, may be on the cards, says Brandt.
The City will have an update on the current water situation by Tuesday afternoon.
