Water supply disruptions to Motherwell due to installation of new bulk meter

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Water Division is installing a bulk zone meter in the Markman Industrial area of Port Elizabeth as part of the Metro's programme to cut water losses.

"In order to achieve this, it will be necessary to isolate the main supply from Motherwell Reservoir and certain areas will be affected [on Wednesday]," the municipality advised residents and businesses.

Thus, the following areas will be without water during the installation:

  • Motherwell NU2,
  • Motherwell NU3,
  • Motherwell NU4,
  • Motherwell NU5, and
  • Ikamvelilhe.

Water supply is expected to be restored later in the day. 

"Water tankers have been arranged and will be deployed in the affected areas."
