UPDATE FOR SOUTHBROOM TO PORT EDWARD SATURDAY MORNING::
Umtamvuna plant is now 99% full; a go ahead has been granted to open all southern reservoirs.
Within the next 2 hours, residents in these areas will begin to get water; possibly low pressure at first but will improve as the day progresses.
BP2 which is the main reservoir for Port Edward was at 47% @ 6am; when it reaches 50% water will begin to flow at good pressure.
The rest will surely get water as lines fill; with high lying streets the last to be fully restored.
Within the next 1-2 hours; water supply will begin to be restored; then slowly until everyone gets.
COURTESY UPDATE FOR SOUTHBROOM TO PORT EDWARD LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON 12/1:
Umtamvuna system is back online; all electro mechanical work has been completed successfully.
Production is now back to normal; all southern reservoirs are rising gradually.
If people continue to reduce usage; the full recovery period may be shorter.
Otherwise it is estimated that by early morning all reservoirs would have reached acceptable levels and full water supply will then be restored.
