THE SOL Plaatje Mu­nic­i­pal­ity has con­firmed that wa­ter cuts to the city would be im­ple­mented from last night.

Wa­ter will be cut nightly from 8pm to 4am in an at­tempt to res­tore the lev­els of the dams at the New­ton Reser­voir.

Sol Plaatje mu­nic­i­pal spokesper­son, Sello Mat­sie, said yes­ter­day that while there were no prob­lems with the pump­ing of the wa­ter from River­ton, or the pipes to Kim­ber­ley, the dams at the reser­voir were be­low ca­pac­ity.

“They are not at crit­i­cal lev­els but we would like to en­sure that all the dams are at op­ti­mum lev­els go­ing for­ward.”

The nightly cuts will con­tinue un­til the lev­els have been re­stored.

“We will not cut wa­ter in the day in or­der to min­imise the in­con­ve­nience to res­i­dents,” Mat­sie said.
