De Lille will give feedback on the city's evolving and dynamic plans plans to deal with the crisis.

"As things stand now if we use all the water left in our dams sparingly, which is at 27.6 percent, combined with other measures, we can stretch out the number of days of water we have left in our dams to March 2018," said De Lille.

"We are in for a long hot dry summer where we will see a rapid decline in our dams because of evaporation," she said.
