Cape Town tourists face water rations

Tourists warned not to waste water as Cape Town battles drought.

Cape Town has imposed emergency water rationing on tourists, including two-minute showers, flushing toilets only when absolutely necessary, and reusing towels.
Tourists have also been warned that hotels are closing their swimming pools and saunas as well as removing bath plugs from hotel bathrooms.
The move comes as Cape Town residents grapple with an ongoing drought which has left authorities scrambling to find alternative potable water sources.
The crisis is the worst to hit the Western Cape in a century and has led to strict water restrictions to avoid a "Day Zero" worst-case scenario, in which residents could be left completely without water.
