South Africa: Cape Town (Western Cape capital), may run out of water within a few years?

(World Tainted Green; c.f. IOL (Independent; Secular; South African) 01 / 07 | July / 2009 )

According to IOL (Independent Newspapers South Africa), the Mother City, Cape Town: may run out of acceptible levels of water supply by the finishing of the year 2012 A.D.

 While City of Cape Town, controlled by the DA (Democratic Alliance) Official Opposition, says that Cape Town's Water Supply, will last until 2020 thanks to the Berg River Dam project, the Department of Water and Environment Affairs, of the central ANC controlled government, has warned of water shortages after 2012, or possibly 2016 if days ahead welcome wet spells in Cape Town, the Capital City of the Western Cape. The Department claims that demand for water supply, would need to significantly decrease for the claims of the city to be true.

Persons specializing in so-called Climate Change, at the University of Cape Town (UCT), quoted by IOL, claim that Cape Town is heading for drier times. Due to the politics of the situation, it is unclear whose version of this to trust, due to the consistency of differences between the National and Provincial government, which have occured in the Western Cape.

In any case, IOL's article, which we find interesting is accessible here:
