CT Water Augmentation Projects stalling

CITYS ALTERNATIVE WATER SOURCE PROJECTS NOT PROGRESSING TO MEET URGENCY.
The City is implementing seven “alternative water source” projects to stave off day zero.
According to the Citys own “water dashboard”, in the one month since 23 Nov 2017, none of these seven projects have progressed more than 4%.
Cumulatively, all seven projects only progressed from 48% to 50% during this same period.

But in the last month (the same period):
Total storage capacity of our dams dropped from 36,1% on 20 Nov 2017 and 32,7% on 18 Dec 2017.
Total weekly drinking water consumption has increased from 580 million litres per day in mid Nov 2017 to 640 million litres per day a month later.
“Day Zero” has moved forward from 13 May 2018 to 29 April 2018

City progress on delivering the solutions ought to be far outstripping the growing urgency.
But its not.
Sad yet predictable.

This concludes a very inept year for the City in respect of managing and delivering on the #WaterCrisis. 2017 has been filled with confusing mixed messages, delayed and slow implementation, denials, blame-shifting, indecision and bad decisions, policy inconsistencies, bad budgeting and spending, bullying and wasted opportunities.

Lets hope the DA concludes its internal processes and the City concludes its investigation process resulting positive changes being brought that staves off a water crisis catastrophe.
