UPDATE: GEORGE TEMPORARILY RESTORE THE POWER SUPPLY IN WILDERNESS AS ESKOM ATTENDS TO THE PROBLEM
The George Municipality has temporarily restored the power supply to all areas in Wilderness.
This follows a power supply outage that occurred on the Eskom power line last night resulting in an unexpected power outage in Wilderness.
The George Municipality’s Electrotechnical Services came in to pick up the load from its power system and gradually restored the power supply to consumers while Eskom is attending to the problem.
All areas have now been temporarily restored and clients should please continue to use electricity sparingly as loading remains a challenge.
WATER SUPPLY RESTORED IN WILDERNESS HEIGHTS
The water truck that was dispatched to Wilderness Heights has now been withdrawn as the power supply has been restored in Wilderness Heights. Residents in Wilderness Heights were earlier today urged to use water sparingly as the Wilderness Heights potable water storage reservoir levels were very low, due to Eskom’s power outage in Wilderness Heights.
