Municipality restores water supply systems

2016-08-18 06:00

THE Ugu District Municipality has restored the water supply in affected areas­ in Hibiscus Coast following the total shutdown of Bhobhoyi Reservoir on Thursday.

After corrective measures by municipal technicians around the clock, we also ensured the recovery of reservoir levels, resuming normal supply by Sunday evening.

We have received some complaints from Marburg Extension 3 that was still experiencing an intermittent water supply - this problem has also since been resolved. The Murchison Hospital reservoir, which was badly affected, has also recovered and the system is back online.

The Gamalakhe area supply took longer to resolve due to excessive air in the system, but normal supply has also been reinstated.

We apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused during this time. It is our view, as the municipality, that water is life and as a caring water services authority, we shall continue to provide our communities with this basic right.

For regular updates on all water and sanitation services, consumers can contact their ward councillor, log onto www.ugu.gov.za visit our Facebook page Ugu District Municipality Talk, contact our call centre on 08000 WATER (92837) or 039 688 5830/36 or SMS 44751.

Ugu District Municipality will continue to promote working together to create an environment that is friendly, responsive, accountable, effective and efficient for our communities.
