It also banned washing cars at home except at certified car washes; and that there should not be any watering of public parks and sports fields unless if it is done through an approved semi-purified irrigation water connection.

Residents who have pools at their homes should cover them forthwith since there should not any further filling up. The other measure is a ban on water features, fountains and ponds.

The statement said the City of Windhoek hereby announces that the persistent drought has left the little choice but to announce a water crisis scenario in the capital in relation to the drought management plan.

Already, the City of Windhoek has adjusted upward water tariffs in a bid to encourage the residents to help save the water.
