Water Restriction from Wiggins Water Works Pumpstation

15 FEBRUARY 2024

Residents and businesses are informed of possible water restrictions in areas that are supplied from uMngeni-uThukela’s Wiggins Water Works High Lift Pumpstation.

This is due to maintenance work being undertaken by uMngeni-uThukela at this facility. The maintenance work will commence on Friday, 16 February at 8am to 4pm.

The City will endeavour to fill up its reservoirs prior to the shutdown and there is an alternative filling of reservoirs through the Durban Heights Water Works.
