ETHEKWINI NEWSFLASH FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 19 MAY 2023
The Municipality is aware of the intermittent supply of water from the Hambanathi Reservoir. The City confirms that various interventions are being implemented to improve water supply to affected areas.
Interventions include closing the reservoir at night to build storage capacity so that water can be distributed equitably. Although the pumps were upgraded recently, excessive demand is putting pressure on the system, especially in higher lying areas that are dependent on the pumping system. The City apologises for the inconvenience and assures residents that interventions are being sought to rectify the situation as soon as possible. ENDS
