17 August 2016 - Water levels in Vaal Dam are running dangerously low.
DENEYSVILLE, Free State - The Water and Sanitation Department has warned South Africans to use water sparingly.
The department says one of the country&39;s main water supplies, the Vaal Dam, is about 34-percent full.
That&39;s the lowest it’s been in years.
Boats have been removed because the water is so shallow.
Officials say they haven&39;t declared a water crisis, but they&39;re hoping for a good rainy season.
