WATER RESTORED Eastern Watermain, 30 March at 05h00
Issued George Municipality – Work on the double pipeline in Heriot Street was finished last night at 23h30 and by 02h30 this morning the whole system was opened up.
WATER UPDATE Eastern Watermain, 29 March at 08h32
Pipeburst on Eastern watermains in Heriot Drive. No impact on traffic. The raw water and drinking water pipelines have both burst. Specialized parts are again required from Cape Town and repair work can only continue once these are received. We currently have no estimate for the arrival of the spares and/or the completion of the repairwork. The old raw water pipeline has been recommissioned again but low water pressure will occur in the Eastern areas.
The PUBLIC IS REQUESTED TO PLEASE USE WATER SPARINGLY as the old raw water pipeline is smaller and cannot handle full capacity. Once the reservoirs empty, a number of areas will be completely without water.
