Planned Water Restriction Affecting New Germany, Pinetown and Clermont Areas on 28 February-01 March 2018
The City is informing residents that the Mount Moriah Water Reservoir will be shutdown overnight from 18:00 on 28 February 2018 to 09:00 on 01 March 2018. This is being done to allow an installation of a major water connection on the GO!Durban bus route. The installation of a water connection will take place on Otto Volek and Dineklman Road intersection in New Germany.
Mount Moriah services Wyebank and Berkshire Downs reservoirs which supply water in most parts of New Germany, Pinetown and Clermont areas. During the shutdown, these two reservoirs will not be filled up with water until the next morning.
EThekwini Water and Sanitation Unit will ensure that both Wyebank and Berkshire Downs reservoirs are full at the time of shutdown so that businesses and residents do not run out of water.
The City is requesting residents in the affected areas to be mindful that there will be a limited amount of water for use over a 12/15 hour period. Residents are urged to use water sparingly during this time so that the water does not run out.
For more information, residents can contact the City’s toll free number 080 311 11 11 or Water WhatsApp number 073 148 3477 or email:
