Issued by George Municipality, 01 February 2024
The Wilderness Heights Reservoir’s level is critically low, and some areas serviced by it might experience low water pressure and even no water.
The pumps and rising main feeding the Reservoir were checked and are fully operational.
The area that the reservoir is servicing is quite vast and some of the lines were walked by our operational staff to check for any leakages, currently, none has been identified, so the search continues.
We appeal to residents to use water sparingly and allow the reservoir to fill up in an attempt to stabilize the network before the next loadshedding segment.
We also request that where residents suspect a possible leak in the network, it be reported to the Fire Department at 044 801 6300 for inspection and attention.
