Water disruption alert for Uitenhage

The upper area of fairbridge heights continue to experience water disruption, this due to pumps that flooded at Van Riebieck reservoir, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said on Tuesday.

"The pumps pump water to Fairbridge reservoir," said Spokesperson, Mthubanzi Mniki.

"We are currently supplying the Fairbridge zone from the Rosedale supply zone , however the supply pressure is low during the night and no water in high lying areas during the day this because of high demand."

The pumps have been removed and are being wired . We anticipate to have restored the motors by Wednesday late.

"Meanwhile the high lying areas are being serviced by water tankers which are roaming in the areas. The call centre has the details of water tankers locations, kindly call 0800 20 5050," Mniki.

"The municipality would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused."
