A woman collects water in a settlement near Cape Town on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018. The city had pushed back “Day Zero” — the date when it might have to turn off most taps because of a long drought. Cape Town, a top international tourist destination, has both high-income oceanside neighborhoods and sprawling informal settlements. Some say poorer residents are unfairly blamed as concerns rise over wasting water. About a quarter of Cape Town’s population lives in the informal settlements, where they get water from communal taps instead of individual spigots at home. The 1 million people in Cape Town’s poor townships make up 25 percent of the city’s 4 million people yet only use 4.5 percent of the water, say water experts.
