We received an update from  Johan Smith DA via Sharon Steyn that there is currently no water in the reservoirs at Newton Waterworks and apparently no water is currently coming in from the Riverton plant.
Please prepare for the possibility that Kimberley will only have water by tomorrow morning or even later.
