The municipality has received a letter dated 30 March 2020 from the Department of Water and Sanitation about an unavoidable maintenance and repair of a pipe leak at the Jericho water pump station.
The planned outage is for twenty four hours from 01 April 2020 at 07:00am to 02 April 2020 at 07:00am.

According to DWS this repair work could not be postponed to a later date due to the fact that is has been postponed too many times already hence the need to finalize the work.
As a contingent arrangement the municipality will ensure adequate available water in the reservoirs, engage nearby mining companies for water collection should it be required by
tankers and additional tankers will be sourced into the affected areas . Further that the operational hours at the GaNala water treatment works will be extended to make make available surplus water.

The municipality is concerned about this possible water supply interruption at the peak of COVID-19 but as indicated by the Department (DWS) that it is unavoidable.
We therefore urge communities to use water sparingly and all water outlets(taps) should be closed during the said period.
