George Municipality says technicians addressing water disruptions

JULY 8, 2016

The George Municipality on Friday afternoon said that the Directorates of Civil Engineering and Electro technical were working on faulty water pipes in the mountainside of Blanco.

"The problem started around 08:30 this morning and left Maitland, Fraaiuitsig, Sonsig, Soeteweide, Oupos, Searle and Napier Streets without water," the municipality said.

"A Water Cart was parked at the NG Church in Napier Street to assist the affected people with water. A Water Tanker will be driving through the area with water as well.

"The technical team hope to have the problem sorted out as soon as possible. At this stage they estimate to have the pumps fixed by late evening.

"George Municipality apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask for the public’s patience."
