City Working to Resolve Power Outages Affecting Water Systems.
15 FEBRUARY 2023
City technicians are working to resolve ongoing power failures which are affecting water supply in various parts of the City.
The ongoing interruption of water supply in various eThekwini areas is due to power outages compounded by loadshedding, which subsequently affects the operation of water systems.
This has led to water outages in several areas across the City.
Affected areas include:
• Pinetown South System: Inteke, Intake Emasayithini, Demat, Welbedacht West, Luganda, Nsizwakazi, Savannah Park, Khoseleni, Klaarwater, Parts of Mariannridge, Hlanganisisa Road, Fig Road, Progress Road.
• Wyebank BPT: KwaDabeka A, B, C, D, E, F, R, P, K, KK Hostel, I, T and H.
In the meantime, the City will continue to deploy tankers to affected areas.
The City would like to apologise to its consumers for the inconvenience.
We urge communities to be patient as we work through this difficult period that the country is facing due to constraints on the national power grid.
