Water Worries In Another Part of the World

Cape Town is getting closer to running out of water.
See video here.

Tell me more.
The South African city’s water supply is running reaaalllllly low. And is expected to run out by mid-April. It’s all thanks to things like climate change and the city’s growing population. Politicians have been playing the blame game. Residents and businesses are watching their water use. Starting today, they have to cut back even more – or they’ll be fined. The city’s working on building stations that can turn seawater into drinkable water. That’s because “Day Zero” would mean people would have to turn off taps until it rains and line up for rationed water. Officials are prepping for the worst.

This is happening in a place that’s considered one of the most ‘green’ cities in the world. If Cape Town hits “Day Zero,” it would be the first major city in the world to run out of water.
