The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation department appeals to residents to be patient while municipal workers repair various burst pipes.
The departments Farouk Robertson says that the water will be turned off until about 18h00. He says that in some areas there is major work to be done, but workers are on site trying to complete the job as promptly as possible.
Robertson says the affected communities include Parkwood Estate, Kirstenhof, Grassy Park, Hout Bay and Simons Town.
“The pipe bursts experienced in some of these areas are quite big and it will take workers some time to do the repair work. They are on site and are getting the materials,” he said.
“We kindly request patience, as we are trying our very best to resolve the matter.”
