IN NUMBERS: What it's going to take to stick to Cape Town's water limits

The Western Cape is expected to run out of water in the next few months.

It's experiencing its worst drought in more than 100 years.

The City announced drastic new water usage curbing measures on Thursday, including that the daily usage limit drops from 87 to 50 litres per person per day.

The new regulations come into effect on 1 February and will last for a period of 150 days, following which the situation will be reviewed.
