PRESS RELEASE BY UGU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY:
Ugu District Municipality would like to publicly dismiss rumours that the municipality will be shutting off water supply. The Municipality did reach consensus with the employees and the agreement between the two parties still stands. The rumours circulating of water supply to be shut off remain rumours and the municipality and its employees are not part of this.
In a case where the municipality has a PLANNED SHUTDOWN to improve supply for the upcoming festive season, it will inform its customers accordingly through the local media and our facebook page as per the norm.
Customers are urged to refrain from perpetuating these rumours as this creates unnecessary panic to customers. Customers are urged to confirm the authenticity of the information they receive through our CALL CENTRE or this communication medium before they publish any information that pertains to the Municipality.
