Temporary Water Shutdown on Mahatma Gandhi Road
 
ETHEKWINI Municipality would like to inform residents of a temporary water shutdown on Mahatma Gandhi Road between Browns Road and Signal Road.
 
Officials from the eThekwini Water and Sanitation Unit are on site connecting water supply from a temporary installed pipe to a newly constructed pipe which was damaged during ongoing construction in the area.
 
The current shutdown was communicated to residents through posters that were put up in the affected area. This allowed residents to plan for the shutdown by storing water. The shutdown is scheduled to take place between 09h00 and 18h00. However, if the permanent pipe is restored swiftly, water supply will be restored earlier.
 
The Municipality would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to residents and businesses.
 
EThekwini residents are urged to report all leaks, illegal use of water and bursts on the following platforms:
 
Customer Care line: 080 13 13 013
WhatsApp Fault Report line: 073 148 3477
SMS: 43554
 
 
ENDS
