King Williams Town - The Buffalo City Municipality has advised residents that Amatola Water had a major water leak on the raw water pipeline from Rooikrantz dam to KWT Water Treatment Works and will shut off the pipeline for repairs from 8am to 4pm on Tuesday.

"This will affect water production at KWT Water Treatment Plant and may result in water supply interruptions in Westbank, KWT CBD, Ginsberg, Breidbach and Masingatha," the municipality said.

"Our storage reservoirs levels will be reasonably high at the start of the shutdown and Consumers are requested to use water sparingly during this period.

"We apologize for the inconvenience."
