Pretoria - The water supply to Sinoville, Annlin, Dorandia, Pretoria North, Wonderboom and areas along the R101 up to Rooiwal was restored on Wednesday evening, the city said.

"Water was turned on at approximately 15:00, a bit later than expected due to the additional work required in securing the pipeline in position," a spokesperson for the city Dikeledi Phiri said in a statement.

The water supply was interrupted after a 600mm diameter water outlet was damaged during construction work at the new water reservoir.

Phiri said about 35 houses in the immediate area of Van der Schyff and Elizabeth Streets in Wonderboom were flooded and claims against the city would be addressed in terms of the contract, that is, via the contractor's insurance.
