Persistent solid rainfall from last week Wednesday (15/01) to today (Monday 20/01) has led to the dam level for today reading 89% with a total rainfall of 148mm recorded.

The official dam reading is calculated every Wednesday by the George Municipality and will be provided. It is expected to rise even further due to continued run-off and further rainfall expected this week.

(Please note the Garden Route Dam needs to be re-calibrated by the Department of Water Affairs following the raising of the wall. Until this process has been completed all readings are based on the previous dam wall height)..
