The City of Cape Town says that a crack has been detected in the main water pipe which supplies water in the Parklands area. The 300mm (in diameter) millimetre asbestos pipe takes a different type of procedure to repair.
The City’s Farouk Robertson says that municipal workers are busy working on it.
“Our guys are in there, feverishly working on the situation trying to repair it,” he said.
Robertson says that the pipe should be fixed by 5 O’clock this evening, but residents will be informed, should there be any further delays.
