UPDATE: 12 July 2022 – 19:00
Please note that the times mentioned are the times Eskom has allocated to do maintenance at Riverton Sub Station. Water restoration in Kimberley will be dependent on the completion of the maintenance and when the pumps at Riverton and Newton Reservoir are switched on. It is therefore most likely that water will only be restored later than 18:00 and possibly only Friday morning.
Please take note that due to Eskom’s supply interruption, we will be unable to pump for 12 hours from Riverton to Newton Reservoir until Eskom is done and has given us the go ahead to pump. We will have to close valves to keep the reservoirs full, which means that there will be no supply of water to households during the day until Eskom is done with its maintenance which they anticipate will last for 12 hours. (See letter from Eskom)
Planned date for Eskom maintenance: Thursday, 21 July 2022 @ 06:00 until 18:00.
Residents will have low pressure to no water during the day (Thu, 21 July 2022) until maintenance by Eskom is complete.
