11 June 2020
The municipality planned a two day water supply shutdown to undertake critical works on the water supply system.
The Witbank dam pump station was commissioned and switched back on line around 03:30am on 11 June 2020. The water plant was put back on line and pumping resumed with reservoirs picking levels.
The Klarinet Extensions 6,7&8 are still affected as the works are to be finalized otherwise the rest of areas should be supplied.
However individual areas experiencing water challenges should be reported and teams will be sent to investigate and repair.
We therefore urge communities to use water sparingly and all water outlets(taps) be closed during the said period.
