Share the news!!!

STATEMENT BY UGU:

NATIONAL WATER SCARCITY AT OUR DOORSTEP: HARDING, NORTH, UMZIMKHULU AND UMTAMVUMA DRYING UP

There is no amount of planning and sophisticated engineering practices that could trigger our most vital and natural resource for water; the RAIN from above.

Harding area, Umtwalume Water Works, and UMTAMVUNA Water Works are at their lowest. Umzimkhulu/Bhobhoyi is worse affected because of its proximity to the sea, hence salty water episodes.

Umgeni Water had to bring special machinery to divert the flow at Umtwalume abstraction point, and that is a very temporary remedy. We need rain.

An urgent multidisciplinary stakeholder engagement session is sitting at 10am today to tackle the Day Zero situation at Harding.

Further engagements will be rolled out,
Keeping you posted
