Kindly take note that we are still experiencing bulk supply reserves challenges at Newton reservoir station due to an increased demand in our system. We have noted with great concern that domestic and commercial watering/irrigation activities (including municipal parks and recreational facilities) are putting a lot of pressure on the demand side. Please encourage our customers and colleagues to delay these activities to off peak periods in order to reduce the demand pressure in the network.
NB: Water Shut Down time will be as follows, from tonight, Friday 12th 2014 at 8pm, tomorrow, Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 8pm until further notice
The water supply is restored exactly from 4am in the Morning. This is to allow the system to be flooded in time, so that the outlying areas (furthest from the reservoir) should receive water in time for the morning rush. If it’s done later than the stated time, it causes some delays.
