Update: Water Supply In The North

27 JANUARY 2024

The Municipality is aware of areas in the north who are experiencing a water outage or intermittent water supply.

The City’s technical teams are trying their level best to increase water flow on the Northern Aqueduct, which is not performing optimally. 

The low pressure on the trunk main is  affecting efficient flows into the Durban North, Virginia ,Sunningdale, uMhlanga, Phoenix, and Verulam reservoirs.

The trunk main is being assessed at every critical point with scouring of the sections to release any possible air entrapment following the completion of the steps test.

The replacement of damaged air valves is also underway.
