A process of upgrading will be done on water pipes in the Mandalay area over the weekend. A new pressure system has been installed, but a few finishing touches still need to be done.

The City of Cape Town's Water and Sanitation Department will be working on the Pressure Management Installation on Saturday night when the water demand in the area is very low. Consumers do not have to worry as minimal disruptions are expected.

Farouk Robertson, communications officer for the Department of Water and Sanitation says that they monitor the water pressure in pipes to prevent unwanted pipe bursts and water wastage. “We’ve installed a pressure management installation on the pipeline, specifically are part of our Water demand management initiative,” said Robertson.

According to Robertson, in their mandate it is required of the department to come up with ways in which to reduce water wastage.
“We aim to spread the very basic commodity to as many people as possible within the City of Cape Town.”
