RESERVOIRS are recovering but still critical in some places
– WATER BALANCING REMAINS IN PLACE
George Municipality, 27 November @ 09H55
George Municipality continues to appeal to the residents of George to USE WATER SPARINGLY and ONLY FOR NECESSITIES – the RESERVOIRS remain critical. We thank the public for their co-operation thus far, without it the network will take longer to stabilize.
We’re aware of portions of Denneoord and George South not having water supply, operational teams currently investigating the cause.
Trucks will be dispersed now to the 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.
Telkom lines damaged by lightning, they are working on restoring service.
