Hilton, Mpophomeni facing water cuts today

2010-10-07 00:00

RESIDENTS of Hilton and Mpophomeni will have to prepare for possible water disruptions today.

The announcement came in an e-mail doing the rounds yesterday warning residents to fill up containers as their supply is likely to be affected.

The message was confirmed by the uMgungundlovu District Municipality.

Bheki Mbambo, uMgungundlovu District Municipality’s technical services manager, said the problem lies with a panel that pumps water to the Groenkloof Reservoir that can only be serviced once the reservoir is emptied.

“It’s something beyond our control but we’re working on it,” Mbambo said.
