Despite the heartening rainfall the Hessequa region received over the weekend, we all need to THINK WATER.  Level 3 Water Restrictions remain in place for Riversdale. Although many community members are diligently saving and conserving water, there are many that are not. Help us to preserve our water supply by changing the way in which we use it and reducing our daily usage,” said Hessequa Municipal Manager Johan Jacobs regarding the municipal effort to secure Hessequa’s water resources.

The latest dam level reading, which is taken weekly on Monday, 11 March 2019 was Korentepoortdam 45,3%  and Duivenhoksdam 47%.
