Water Supply Restrictions from Durban Heights Treatment Works

8 JUNE 2023

Residents and businesses are informed of water supply restrictions from the Durban Heights Treatment Works. 

This is due to essential work being conducted by Umgeni Water to remove corroded chlorine booster pipes at the plant.

While this repair work is underway, the plant inflow will be reduced to 200ML/day for a duration of 12 hours.

Umgeni Water will have enough storage prior to the shutdown  commencement at Durban Heights. EThekwini Municipality will have their distribution reservoir filled up as well.

The work will begin this morning, 8 June 2023. Umgeni Water anticipates that this work will be concluded by 6pm on the same day.

System recovery will occur thereafter.

Residents are requested to use water sparingly to prevent reservoirs from running dry as water will not be available during the duration of the shutdown.
