Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality experiences reduced water supply

Port Elizabeth - Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is currently experiencing reduced water supply from the Western sources due to technical malfunctions.

“The situation is aggravated due to low storage conditions caused by the recently extended duration of Stage 4 load shedding,” said the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Communications Office.

“Teams are currently on site and augmentation will be implemented from an alternative source, however, this is not sufficient to completely supplement the normal supply. 

“We urgently call on all consumers within NMBM to reduce consumption drastically to avoid areas from experiencing interruptions in supply,” said the Communications Office.

The following supply areas are at highest risk of being affected:

  • Parts of Walmer
  • Walmer Downs
  • Mangold Park
  • Glen Hurd
  • Newton Park
  • Greenacres
  • Parts of Cotswold
  • Parts of Schauderville
  • Linkside
  • Mill Park
  • Parts of Central
  • Mount Croix
  • Perridgevale
  • Summerstrand

“The municipality would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused.”
