Water supplies restored: Municipality
Water supply disruptions experienced in various areas of Nelson Mandela Bay since Wednesday should be over. The municipality on Thursday apologised that the interruptions had taken longer than anticipated but expected supplies to be restored by late afternoon.
Around 9pm on Thursday night, the municipality, through its Tweeter page, said; "We have opened water distribution, but are water system is empty, so our reservoirs are filling up. Expect normal water flow by midnight."
On Tuesday the municipality announced that the water supply to numerous areas will be affected from 8am on Wednesday and was estimated to last until 8am on Thursday. This was due to the planned connection of a diverted section of the water main that was required as a result of the construction of the intersection on the N2 at the Bay West Mall.
The following areas were affected:
- Rowallan Park East of Lategan Avenue
- Gelvan Park
- Hunters Close
- Kabega Park
- Linton Grange
- Franciss Evatt Park
- Cotswold West of Disa Avenue
- Cotswold Extension
- Sundridge Park
The following areas may have also experienced low pressure/no water:
- Bay West
