City of Cape Town urges residents to use water sparingly

The City of Cape Town has warned certain communities to continue reducing their water consumption to ease the strain on the network and minimise further disruptions.

Communities that are affected are those in Bloekombos, Wallacedene, Kraaifontein Industrial and Eikendal.

 According to the City, the supply line to the De Novo reservoir was repaired on Saturday, however another burst occurred on a section of the pipeline in close proximity to where the initial repairs were done.

This has caused supply disruption in Belmont Park and De Novo as well as high-lying areas in Klein Begin, which are currently being serviced with water tankers.

 The City's MMC for water and sanitation, Zahid Badroodien, has said, the City is making every effort to maintain supply to the affected residents while the repairs are underway, and they greatly appreciate their co-operation and patience in this regard.
