Notice from Sol Plaatje Municipality:
“Our water levels at Newton Reservoir are currently at 14.6 ft. as of the time 14:15, today. The team working on the faulty pump have been able to identify the problem and conclusively it’s due to a damaged bearing, which will replaced by experts from a Gauteng based Manufacturing company tomorrow. Hopefully the whole repairs will be completed by Thursday. We still continue to issue the precautionary advice of urging residents to use water sparingly. Today’s rainfall will defiantly ease consumption and we will continue providing information updates on the matter on all available media. Thank you for the cooperation”
Sol Plaatje Municipality.
