Metro says there are water supply disruptions in Uitenhage and Despatch

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on Wednesday advised residents that there are water supply disruptions in Despatch and Uitenhage.

"This is due to complications which have occurred during critical work being undertaken at the Nooitgedagt Water Treatment works, as part the drought mitigation augmentation measures," said Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Communications and Media Management Officer, Mthubanzi Mniki.

"Water is currently being re-routed from alternative sources and it is expected that reservoirs should start filling this evening."

He said that tankers have been deployed in areas which are most effected.

"The Municipality wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused."
