  • MEDIA RELEASE: Testing continues for automated pressure zone roll-outs in Cape Town CBD and surrounds14th February 2018

    CITY OF CAPE TOWN
    13 FEBRUARY 2018
    MEDIA RELEASE

    Testing continues for automated pressure zone roll-outs in Cape Town CBD and surrounds

    In an effort to help reduce water usage to 50 litres per person per day and beat Day Zero, the City of Cape Town is rolling out further pressure testing across the metro. By creating automated pressure zones, we will be able to adjust water pressure remotely and work more efficiently. Read more below:

    The City continues to prepare automated pressure zones for the implementation of pressure management. This technology reduces the flow of water and thus helps to reduce water usage. To install an automated zone, the City needs to test the integrity of the local reticulation network.

    Work is scheduled to take place from this evening, Tuesday 13 February 2018 from 20:00 to 04:00 in the Cape Town CBD, Foreshore and Zonnebloem areas which are bounded by the N1 Freeway and Heerengracht Road to the north, Bree Street to the west, Searle Street to the east and Keizersgracht Street to the south.

    We have recently successfully tested areas including the Cape Town CBD, Green Point, Paarden Eiland, Woodstock, Salt River, Epping, Delft and Brooklyn. Testing is happening across the metro.

    ‘The pressure management programme started in 2004. There are more than 115 automated zones across the city which are being prioritised based on their leak and burst rates. Areas with high water pressure typically experience more leaks and bursts.

    ‘Other areas will be informed of supply disruptions in due course. At least 25 areas across the city have been identified that could benefit from this technology. Affected areas are requested not to stockpile large volumes of municipal water as the service interruptions are not expected to be in effect for long periods.

    ‘The City thanks residents for their cooperation in reducing water consumption thus far, and regrets any inconvenience this pressure management work will cause but it is absolutely vital that we try everything in our power to stretch our water supplies through summer and into winter,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; and Energy, Councillor Xanthea Limberg.

    Not only does pressure management generally lower consumption by reducing the rate at which water flows to properties, it also reduces the risk of leaks and pipe bursts by better ensuring that pressure remains within levels that reduce stress on the infrastructure.

    At all times careful consideration is being given to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply in the affected areas. Roll-outs to other parts of the metro will be communicated in due course.

    Please keep all taps closed and store 5 to10 litres of water for essential purposes during this time. Do not store an excessive amount of municipal water.

  • Volunteers sought for water management plan14th February 2018

    CITY OF CAPE TOWN - MEDIA RELEASE

    City seeks volunteers for water management plan

    The City’s Disaster Risk Management Centre is reaching out to community based organisations for assistance to help avoid a situation where taps run dry, but also to volunteer their services should Day Zero arrive. Read more below:

    The City of Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre (DRMC) is shoring up its defences as part of its integrated water emergency management plan.

    The DRMC is preparing for the arrangements to manage and coordinate points of water distribution across the city, in the event that dam levels reach the point where the City is forced to switch off the taps. Part of the plan is to identify organisations and residents that are willing to volunteer.

    Mass information sessions with Neighbourhood Watch Groups, non-governmental and community organisations as well as religious groups are underway to brief them on the Critical Water Shortages Disaster Plan and to appeal for volunteers to assist the DRMC. A session with Neighbourhood Watch groups was held on Saturday 10 February 2018.
    The volunteer plan has two aspects; to mobilise organisations to help us spread the message about the importance of using water sparingly, in line with the Level 6B water restrictions, but also to rally for assistance should we get to a point where we need to roll out water collection points. This will be a mammoth undertaking and we will need as many hands on deck as possible, ensuring that it is done in a manner that is well coordinated and everyone knowing what is expected of them,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.

    Community organisations are being asked to:

    · Assist with education and awareness (driving saving messaging);
    · Day Zero preparations by identifying the most vulnerable in communities and providing assistance
    · Sharing useful information and links e.g. websites and social networks
    · Identify and liaise with other organisations at a neighbourhood level (religious bodies, schools, old age homes, shelters and crèches) around water saving information and contingency plans

    The Disaster Risk Management Centre is also recruiting volunteers who can assist at water collection points and caring for the most vulnerable. Duties at collection points would include:

    · Helping to set up water collection points and dispensing water
    · Cleaning/disinfecting water dispenser pipes;
    · Marshalling queues and assisting vulnerable individuals and groups
    · Assist City Officials with logistic arrangements on site

    ‘These information sessions are part of the City’s ongoing efforts to mobilise the whole of society to help us survive the greatest crisis this city has ever faced. Day Zero has been pushed out to early-June, but we still have to prepare meticulously for the worst. Our efforts will not be wasted, even if Day Zero is avoided. It builds resilience and responsiveness in the face of any kind of threat in the future,’ added Alderman Smith.

    Organisations who want to volunteer their services will be required to complete a simple registration process. The forms can be obtained by emailing: dayzero.neighbourhoodwatch@capetown.gov.za

  • CPU Security flaws - Meltdown and Spectre12th January 2018

    By now you may have heard about the recent discovery of 2 very serious security flaws in all CPU’s that have been produced since 1995, known as Meltdown and Spectre.  This affects virtually every device one may own, including, but not limited to, personal computers, laptops, servers, cloud based devices and cell phones.  

    Most importantly, these flaws are not operating system dependant and affect Windows, Linux and Apple products equally.  

    Without going  into the technical aspects of the flaws, it allows a hacker to effectively see everything in memory on your computer, this data may include passwords, credit card details, personal email messages, names, addresses, essentially the intruder will be able to see whatever you are currently doing.  The cause of the fault is to do with chip engineering flaws caused by the fact that the chip manufacturers favoured speed of execution over safety when designing their chips.  For those interested, you may read a more in-depth article about the vulnerability here.

    To mitigate the possibility of you being affected (which is at this time fairly small, though the threat will grow exponentially once hackers start writing programs to exploit the vulnerability) you are strongly advised to ensure the operating systems on your devices are fully updated.  In addition, software programs that access the internet, such as Google Chrome1, Firefox etc 2, should also be updated to the latest release.  Note that programs such as Internet Explorer and Safari in Apple devices, that are part of the operating system do not need to be updated independently as these will be patched along with the operating system updates3.

    For reference, once the OS fixes have been applied, you will most likely see a decrease in device performance somewhere in the region of 10 to 20%.  Unfortunately this is unavoidable, but you are strongly advised not to put off installing updates because of this.

    Will you please ensure your staff are aware of the above and that they are advised to update their own personal systems and cell-phones.

    Notes:

    • Google has stated, “Chrome 64, due to be released January 23, will contain mitigations to protect against exploitation.” In the meantime, you can enable “Site Isolation” found in current stable versions of Chrome to provide better protection.
    • Mozilla has released information describing their response, including how Firefox 57 will address these security flaws.
    • If you use it, please make sure you update your ESET software, then update your Windows OS to protect against this exploit.  If I have installed ESET on any of your devices then it will automatically update itself.
    • A simple means to check if your Windows devices are up to date:
      • Click the Start button
      • Do not click anything else and just type the following: control /name microsoft.windowsupdate then press the enter key
      • What you see will depend on your version of Windows, but all should offer you the option to check for updates, just click the button and let it do its thing
