Water cuts extended

543

The Sol Plaatje Municipality today reinstated the water supply interruptions from noon until 5pm and from 9pm until 5am.

“This is in an effort to rebuild our water storage capacity at our Newton Reservoirs which are currently depleted,” it said in a statement.

“The situation has been worsened by a major rupture on a 900mm diameter pipe in the vicinity Riverton on Sunday, leading to exponential water losses.”

Water tankers will remain in place for areas that have been affected by a complete supply outage due to extreme low pressure.

In Roodepan the municipality’s waterworks team is undertaking repair work on a burst pipe and work is almost done.
