Amath­ole District Mu­nic­i­pal­ity will con­tinue to cart water to But­ter­worth res­i­dents un­til the burst water pipe that left hun­dreds, if not thou­sands, with­out water, is fixed.

The ADM is an­tic­i­pat­ing that that it will take at least a week to fix the burst water pipe at the Reservoir Hill Pump Sta­tion in But­ter­worth.

Ar­eas that have been af­fected are Bika town­ship, Cuba, Vuli Val­ley, Ex­ten­sions 14 and 24, Mcubakazi and the Ibika sur­round­ing vil­lages. Act­ing ADM spokesper­son Noni Vuso said they were work­ing around clock to fix the burst pipe.

Vuso said pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions af­fected by the water cut in­cluded Wal­ter Sisulu Univer­sity, But­ter­worth cam­pus.

“It af­fects WSU, but they do have three bore­holes on site. Water is tanked by water trucks to the rest of the af­fected ar­eas in But­ter­worth,” she said.

Thurs­day’s Daily Dis­patch ar­ti­cle, head­lined “Taps run dry af­ter reservoir pipe burst”stated that No­masik­izi Konza was the ADM mayor. Konza was also quoted in the story which was also in­cor­rect. In fact, the cur­rent ADM mayor is Nom­fusi Win­nie Nx­awe. We re­gret the er­rors. the
