Yesterday Water & Sanitation RSA tweeted that the Vaal Dam is at 100%. The dam last reached 100% capacity three years ago and six years before that, according to a tweet from Johannesburg Water.
The persistent rainfall over the past few weeks has raised the water levels of not only Vaal Dam but other dams as well such as the Grootdraai, Bloemhof and Sterkfontein dams.
The Vaal Dam has reached 100% at 17:00 this afternoon. Meanwhile, strong inflows from the catchments supplying the Integrated Vaal River System (IVRS) continue strongly. #WaterIsLife @LindiweSisuluSA@Rand_Water https://t.co/KQppZpi2Fs pic.twitter.com/32cgqh3uEQ

I shouldn't let my mood be dictated by the level of the Vaal Dam. But here we are.
