Expect water supply interruptions in Port Elizabeth next week


The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has announced that the diverting of water pipes would result in wide scale interruptions from 08h00 this coming Wednesday (22 July) and Thursday (23 July) in Port Elizabeth.

“This is due to the planned connection of a diverted section of the water main that was required as a result of the construction of the newly constructed intersection on the N2 at the Bay West Mall,” the municipality’s Mthubanzi Mniki said in a statement.

Effected areas will include Rowallan Park East of Lategan Avenue, Westering, Morningside, Malabar, Parkside, Parkridge, Gelvan Park, Springdale, Barcelona, Helenvale, Parsonsvlei, Hunters Close, Kabega Park, Linton Grange, Franciss Evatt Park, Cotswold West of Disa Avenue, Cotswold Extension, Fernglen, Sundridge Park and Framesby. Low water pressure is also expected in the vicinity of Bay West as well as Sherwood.

“Consumers are urged to use water sparingly during this period. Residents are encouraged to fill up containers on Tuesday evening (21 July 2015) for only the essential necessities,” Mniki said.
