There could be a shortage of clean water if South Africans do not work to conserve it.

CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town is urging residents to save water.

It warns that if they fail to save water, further restrictions will be imposed.

Although residents have reduced their per day usage, they have to do more to reach the national target.

City spokesman Priya Reddy has called on residents to report water wastage to officials.

She says there are many simple ways for people to save water.

"When you are brushing your teeth make sure the taps are closed while brushing your teeth. Take shorter sharper showers," suggested Reddy. 

"You can also make sure your taps and washers are all properly closed. There is a lot of little things you can do every day and it all adds up."
