Water Interruption Daily Schedule – 10 October 2023

UPDATE: 10 October 2023 – 12:35

The Sol Plaatje Municipality would like to update the residents about the additional water interruption schedule, over and above the nightly water interruption taking place. This is due to low and still dropping water levels at the Newton Reservoirs. Efforts to counter the drop in reservoir levels are impacted by the peak demand due to current heatwave, lower than normal production in Riverton WPW and the re-opening of schools.

The water levels at Newton Reservoir is still low, and some areas in Kimberley is experiencing low to no water. As a result, the Municipality will be embarking on an afternoon water interruption scheduled as follows:

DATE AREA CLOSURE TIME OPENING TIME
Tuesday 10 Oct 2023 Township & Kimberley Town 11:00 15:00
Wednesday 11 Oct 2023 Township & Kimberley Town 11:00 15:00
Thursday 12 Oct 2023 Township & Kimberley Town 11:00 15:00
Friday 13 Oct 2023 Township & Kimberley Town 11:00 15:00

During the water interruption schools, clinics, and hospitals that do not have water storage facilities will be provided with water through the water tanker. The water levels at the Newton Reservoir are not filling up as expected due to the water filters at the Riverton Water Treatment Plant that require refurbishment. The Water Treatment Works is not operating at optimum level currently.

The current levels are:

TANK NUMBER CAPACITY DESIRED LEVELS CURRENT AVG LEVELS
1 102 Mega litres 16 feet 8.5 feet
2 91 Mega litres 15 feet 8.11 feet
3 45 Mega litres 14 feet 0.0 feet
4 23 Mega litres 14 feet 9.1 feet
The Municipality is working tirelessly to restore uninterrupted and reliable water to the residence of Sol Plaatje and your patience and understanding is highly appreciated.
