MEDIA STATEMENT BY UGU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY:
SOUTHERN MAIN BULK PIPELINE PLANNED SHUTDOWN:
Ugu District Municipality hereby informs its customers of planned shutdown of 300- and 375-mm Steel Pipelines to conduct repairs and valve replacement on the offtake chamber in Uvongo Drive.
The planned shutdown is scheduled as follows:
DATE: 12 March 2019
DURATION: 12 HOURS (06:00 – 18:00)
AFFECTED AREAS: Margate Extension 3/7, Nosita, Ramsgate South and North, Uvongo
Customers are urged to use water very sparingly during this period as full supply restoration is expected 24 hours post shutdown for high lying areas. Based on the demand some reservoir outlets will be closed to maintain storage and enable quicker restoration.
Please also note that relief supply where required will be prioritised to Health facilities due to limitation of water tankers.
Customer patience and cooperation will be highly appreciated.
