POSSIBLE WATER SUPPLY INTERRUPTION TO AREAS FED BY CRITERION RESERVOIR DUE TO SCHEDULED ZETDC SHUTDOWNS AND ONGOING FLOWSERVE RAW WATER PIPELINE REPAIRS.

The City of Bulawayo would like to inform members of the public that water supplies to all areas fed from Criterion Clear, 6J, and Hillside reservoirs may be disrupted from late afternoon Friday, 21st January 2022, to Saturday morning, 22nd January 2022 and then again from Monday morning, 24th January 2022, to Wednesday morning, 26th January 2022.

This will be due to the following factors

  1. Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission Distribution Company (ZETDC) is doing vital maintenance on their systems and there will be interruption of power to Criterion Waterworks from 09:00 to 16:00 hours which may result in treatment being suspended.
  2. Raw water pumping from Ncema (Esigodini) to Criterion will be shut down to improve control mechanisms on the Flowserve raw water pumping main. These are mandatory works which will be conducted simultaneously with the ZETDC shutdown.

In light of the aforementioned interruptions, in order for the City's reservoirs that are fed by Criterion to remain stable, all areas served by these reservoirs will remain closed until power is restored, allowing sufficient time for reservoirs to fully recover back to satisfactory levels.

Bulawayo City Council wishes to apologise to its valued consumers for the inconvenience likely to be caused.



Date: Friday, 21st January 2022
