Water Starts Flowing at Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital



19 FEBRUARY 2023

Piped water started flowing to Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital today, 19 February, following the completion of the construction of the 400mm diameter steel pipeline.

The City’s Water and Sanitation team worked tirelessly on the construction of the pipeline which required re-routing to avoid damage to the South Coast Bridge on Umlaas Canal.

The construction was done parallel to a temporary line which assisted in supplying water to areas such as Glebelands, Mega City and surrounding areas while the permanent pipeline was being constructed.

While work to construct the permanent and temporary connection was underway, nearby affected residents and the hospital were supplied with water through tankers.

The City apologises for the inconvenience caused and thanks residents for their patience.
