Water shutdown to Jeffreys Bay

2018-04-12 06:02

THE water supply to the whole of Jeffreys Bay will be shut off on Tuesday (17 April) next week.

Kouga Mayor Elza van Lingen said the shutdown was necessary to repair a leak in the main pipeline from the Churchill Dam.

“There will still be water in the pipes, so the supply will not stop immediately. The water pressure will, however, be very low and, depending on how quickly the water in the pipes is used up, the taps in some areas could run dry.”

She appealed to all residents to use water sparingly so as to minimise taps running dry.

The work will commence early morning and is expected to be completed by the afternoon.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause,” she said.

“Our teams will be working as quickly as possible to minimise the chance of interruptions.”
