We received information from Sol Plaatje Municipality that water should be back on by 20:30, tonight. Unfortunately from past experience we expect that this might well not happen in the given time frame.
Please share and forward –
Sol Plaatje Municipality just send out a notice of possible water shutdowns as of tonight if the current problems don’t improve.
“Kindly use water sparingly. Should the problem not improve, we will commence with water shut downs from tonight to up the levels until further notice” – Sello Matsie of Sol Plaatje Municipality.
Full statement below.
“We are experiencing some serious problems at the moment on the water supply from Riverton. While the maintenance at our Riverton purification plant went well yesterday, water demand is surpassing supply levels and we have initiated the booster pump at Newton to boost the low pressure levels in the system. Areas that are experiencing low pressure is mainly in the CBD and high lying areas. Kindly use water sparingly. Should the problem not improve, we will commence with water shut downs from tonight to up the levels until further notice.”
