MEDIA RELEASE
 
Northern Area Water Faults
 
The Municipality is aware of a water fault affecting the northern parts of the city. Water tankers have been dispatched to aid communities.
 
Ntuzuma, some parts of Inanda and Amatoanna have been without water due to a power failure at the Ntuzuma Reservoir 2 since last night, 27 March 2019. This has led to the reservoir being emptied. The reservoir will take some time to refill.
 
The Water and Sanitation Unit is also attending to a burst water pipe at the Airport reservoir and Desainagar, La Mercy and Sea Tides are without water.
 
Technicians are working to repair the faults and water will be restored as soon as possible. The city call on communities to be patient and use water sparingly even when supply returns.
