WA­TER CUTS LOOM­ING

Pretoria News - - METRO -

THE City has urged res­i­dents to be pa­tient with with it as it en­deav­ours to en­sure all res­i­dents in and around the metro have im­proved wa­ter sup­ply.

Ar­eas which are likely to be af­fected are Mabopane, Morula View and Win­ter­veldt. Wa­ter in­ter­rup­tions will be from 4am next Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 12, un­til mid­night on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 13.

Metro spokesper­son Lin­dela Mashigo said the shut­down was nec­es­sary for the City to con­nect the newly in­stalled 1 200mm steel pipe to an ex­ist­ing one at the Mabopane main reser­voir out­let.

It was also nec­es­sary for the sched­uled work to take place, and re­quired the City to shut down the wa­ter sup­ply in the area. Mashigo said the work was nec­es­sary as it would lessen the need for un­planned main­te­nance, limit pos­si­ble pipe bursts and im­prove wa­ter sup­ply over­all in the com­mu­nity.

Dur­ing the shut­down, roam­ing wa­ter tankers will sup­ply res­i­dents with wa­ter.
