Water supply disruptions to several parts of the Bay during repairs

NOVEMBER 4, 2015

Residents of Booysens Park, Bloemendal, Joe Slovo, KwaMagxaki, Kwadwesi and Chatty are advised that their water supply will be interrupted from 09:00 to approximately 16:00 on Wednesday.

According to the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, during that time its engineers will be repairing the water supply mains leading from the Bloemendal Reservoir. This follows a leakage in the pipeline, caused by the heavy rains experienced over the past few days.

The Chairperson of the NMBM Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Committee, Cllr Andile Mfunda, has given the affected residents the following reassurance: “We understand the inconvenience that these interruptions are going to cause communities and businesses.

"I have instructed the relevant officials to finish the repairs as quickly as humanly possible and give regular updates. Water tankers will be made available to and in the affected areas to assist the affected residents.”
