Despatch currently experiencing a 'water supply shortfall': Municipality

JANUARY 28, 2016

The Despatch area is currently experiencing a water supply shortfall resulting in abnormally low reservoir levels, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said on Thursday afternoon.

"Water tankers have already been deployed in the Reservoir Hills and Khayamnandi areas due to a disruption in supply in these suburbs.

"Certain adjustments have been made to divert water from other areas and the system is being monitored," the municipality said.

"Residents are urged to use water sparingly to allow the system to recover."
