RESERVOIRS are recovering well
but not out of the woods yet – WATER BALANCING REMAINS IN PLACE
George Municipality, 27 November @ 15h00
George Municipality continues to appeal to the residents of George to USE WATER SPARINGLY and ONLY FOR NECESSITIES – the RESERVOIRS are recovering well but we are not out of the woods yet. According to our Civil Engineering Directorate we are in a better position than yesterday this time and should have recovered well by tomorrow morning. We thank the public for their co-operation thus far, without it the network will take longer to stabilize.
Trucks in following areas:
(Blanco) Millies (just off George Rd)
(Blanco) c/o Golden Valley Drive and Chrystal Avenue (Vlakkie)
(Blanco) rugby field in Vloed Street
(George South) Newton Street
The George Municipality has yesterday afternoon been forced to implement rebalancing of the water system. The areas that have all had water (since Monday 23 November) have been switched off:
These include: Blanco, Heatherlands, Heatherpark, Glenbarrie, Kingswood, King George Park, Rooirivierrif
Thembalethu, Kraaibosch, Blue mountain, Glenwood, Ballotsview, Parkdene, Conville, Borchards, Lawaaikamp, Proteapark, Loerie Park, Eden.
The Civil Engineering Services Department will continue to monitor until the reservoirs have recovered enough before opening full network again.
NOTE: Thembalethu, Pacaltsdorp, Herold’s Bay and Oubaai have sufficient water reserves not to require water tankers.
PLEASE report EMERGENCIES ONLY to 044 801 9111 until Telkom can restore other lines. PLEASE DO NOT USE CELL PHONE NUMBERS DISTRIBUTED EARLIER.
