SEVERAL areas in the city might experience lower water pressure and/or water interruptions due to repairs currently under way at the Newton Reservoir Complex.

Sol Plaatje Municipality spokesperson Sello Matsie said on Monday that two leakages were discovered on two pipes at the reservoir and they had to close the supply of water.

Matsie indicated that it is anticipated that the repairs might not take too long.

“We had to close the supply of water in order to determine where exactly the leakages are in order to weld it closed or put on a cascade.

“We are just doing the right thing by informing residents in order for them to know exactly why their water pressure is low,” said Matsie.

“The inconvenience is regrettable. Supply will be restored immediately after the work is complete.”
