Water leak causing havoc in street

2015-07-02 06:00

FOR the past weeks, motorists had to duck and swerve in the pothole-ridden St Francis Street in Jeffreys Bay.

According to Kouga Municipality spokesperson, Laura-Leigh Randall, there is a leak in one of the main waterlines and the running water is damaging the road.

“This leak was to be fixed last week, but had to be postponed as the contractor had a personal tragedy,” says Randall.

“It’s a big job to repair the leak - the water to lower Wavecrest and Kabeljous will have to be switched off - and a special part had to be made. The repairs will now be done in two sessions - first on July 7 and then on July 14.”

The water to lower Wavecrest and Kabeljous will be switched off from 16:00 to about 02:00 the next morning on both days.

“There should still be some water in the pipes when this happens, but the water pressure will be very low and some houses might find that they have no water,” says Randall.
