Eskom issued a notice that the power supply to Langleg will be interrupted on Tuesday from 08:30am to 4:30pm.
The interruption will affect the pumping of water from the Riverton Water Purification plant to Kimberley.
Municipal spokesman, Sello Matsie, pointed out that while this will affect the levels at the Newton reservoirs, the municipality is confident that there is sufficient water in storage and in the system, to meet the city’s demands. “We do not expect the city’s water pipes to run dry.”
The interruption is necessary to enable Eskom to conduct maintenance.
