According to uMngeni-uThukela Water, the planned maintenance is a component of efforts to fix infrastructure that was harmed by the floods last year.
The shutdown should continue until 8 p.m. that evening, according to Siyabonga Maphumulo of the utility.
This was done to make room for the removal of a steel plate that had been put in place on Aqueduct 2 to stop water flow while repairs were being made.
A double isolation facility will be installed as part of the shutdown so that the contractor carrying out the repairs can keep working on the Aqueduct until it is recommissioned in December of this year.
The goal of uMngeni-uThukela’s maintenance shutdown is to reduce the likelihood of significant water outages before the busy holiday season begins.
According to Maphumulo, there will be water shortages and low water pressure in some areas.
” We urge the public to use water sparingly and postpone activities that require additional water, such as washing cars, watering gardens, or filling swimming pools during this time, in order to minimize this impact.”
The following areas will be impacted:
1. Reservoirs and areas were supplied by the Northern Aqueduct.
