75 Hour Water Disruption in the Cape Flats

The City of Cape Town Water and Sanitation will undertake a 75-hour operation on essential maintenance to its bulk water supply network on the Cape Flats.

This will result in no water and low water pressure in some areas from 1a.m on Friday, 16 September 2022 until 3a.m on Monday, 19 September 2022.

Areas mostly affected are Pelican Heights,Peacock Close and Schaapkraal. The City said that that there will be no water for 3 days in these areas and that standpipes and water tanker will be provided in these areas for essential water usage

The municipality said that areas such as Browns Farm/Philippi, Eagle Park, Grassy Park, parts of Khayelitsha Site C, Lavender Hill, Lotus River, Manenberg, Mitchells Plain, Muizenberg, Ottery, Parkwood, Retreat, Seawinds, Steenberg, Strandfontein, Surrey Estate, Vrygrond, Wetton and Zeekoevlei, will experience low water pressure, which may become a 'trickle flow' at times

The City’s Mayco member for water and sanitation, Zahid Badroodien said “Water supply is being rerouted from elsewhere in the network to these areas. All these areas will have some water, but at lower than usual pressure,affected residents need to get ready for this weekend. They can help prepare themselves by storing water in clean, sealed containers and using water sparingly during this period, and using other tips provided. From the City's side, we are doing all we can to help by providing water tankers and standpipes to three areas that will have no water”
