Roads in certain areas across Cape Town are prone to flooding during the rainy season. Flooding often occurs due to blocked stormwater drains, mostly as a result of illegal dumping into the City’s stormwater system. The City urges communities to please refrain from dumping objects in stormwater drains, and to report anyone who is doing so. Residents can also do their part by clearing their driveways, pavements and gutters.
