The city of Cape Town has been in a state of severe drought for several years, forcing the levels in the reservoirs that feed the city to dwindle. Each point on this chart represents how full the reservoirs were the same week each year. As of Feb. 19 2018, they were at 24.4% of their capacity. The last 10% of the water in any given reservoir is not usable, so in total, the city has about 14.4% of usable water left.
