EMERGENCY WATER INTERRUPTION UPDATE: 2 September 2020 – 06:00
REPAIRS COMPLETED

Kindly be advised that our repairs on the 965mm Pipeline has been completed just now, including the installation of the T-piece at Newton Reservoir for the university already yesterday. We are currently opening up the valves on the supply lines from Riverton Purification plant. Newton Reservoir will be started up, all this in a synchronised manner. Please be patient because it will take a little of time before water reaches some of the areas in the city. We thank you for your patience.

Thank you, baaie dankie, Siyabulela, Re ya leboga

WATER INTERRUPTION UPDATE :1st September 2020: 22:30

The welding process is in currently underway after a lengthy delay due to water that was still trapped in the pipe and the safety concern. The team will work throughout the night to ensure supply is restored.

Thanks for your cooperation.

WATER SUPPLY INTERRUPTION UPDATE: 1st September 2020. 15:25

Currently water is still being pumped from the 965mm water pipe. Once this has been completed the welding will commence.

The work area is currently has been cleared due to the wet soil conditions while the mobile crane has been utilized to remove the concrete air valve chamber to ensure that safe working environment is maintained.

The T-piece has been installed at Newton Reservoir for the university water connection. We are busy checking that bolts are all lining up.

So far the delay has impacted our timelines but will do our best to successfully restore supply. Thanks

Further updates will be communicated.

 

EMERGENCY WATER SUPPLY INTERRUPTION. ALL AREAS

Dear Consumer

We are currently encountering serious loss of water on the 965 pipeline, next to the Roodepan area. This has led to reservoir levels dropping despite pumping at full capacity.

An emergency shutdown will be effected tomorrow morning Tuesday, 1st September 2020 around 5am, to allow for emergency repairs on the affected pipeline.

This will definitely leave the city without water for the whole day until supply is restored late at night. The Interruption is regretful and we are mindful of the effects such will have to the entire community and businesses. Every effort will be done to minimize the downtime.

The community is encouraged to save enough water to for use throughout tommorow and will be updated regarding progress.

Thanks
