NOTICE: INTERRUPTION OF WATER SUPPLIES TO MOST AREAS OF THE CITY DUE TO ERRATIC POWER SUPPLY TO THE CITY’S WATER FACILITIES.
The City of Bulawayo would like to advise members of the public that the City’s Water facilities are currently experiencing power outages that are affecting water abstraction, pumping, treatment and storage of both treated and raw water over the past 6 days.
This has had a negative overall effect on the City’s capacity to ensure continuous and in some instances scheduled water supply to all areas. These power supply interruptions have been as follows:
|Umzingwane Dam & Inyankuni Dam||Abstraction pump stations (33 hours|
|Ncema Waterworks & Fernhill Booster Station||Treatment and major pump station (33 hours)|
|Nyamandlovu Rochester Pump Station, Cowdray Park Booster Station & Nyamandlovu Aquifer||264 hours|
By way of this notice, residents are being appraised of the situation as this is leading to erratic water supplies. In cases when the City reservoirs deplete to critical levels, supply to affected suburbs will be turned off till such a time where power supply to the mentioned plants has been restored to levels that will enable constant and consistent abstraction, treatment and pumping plus the raising of supply reservoirs to stable and satisfactory levels.
