Cape Town is Drying Out

Wassernotstand - Kapstadt trocknet aus

South Africa's Cape Town could be the first metropolis to run out of water. For years the city has been plagued by a once in a century drought, and the reserves in the dams are threatening to dry out. "Day Zero", the day on which there is no more water in the pipes, could just be averted - but the state of emergency remains in force. Since the beginning of the year, each resident has only been allowed to consume 50 litres of water a day. For comparison: In Austria, consumption averages 135 litres per day. Reporter Patrick A. Hafner shows what life is like in South Africa when there is no more running water in public buildings and shopping centres and how you have to get drinking water with canisters from public water collection points in a megacity, because the police hunt all those who do not follow the emergency measures.
