WATER DISRUPTIONS IN ROWALLAN PARK, KABEGA AND SURROUNDING AREAS.
Greenbushes reservoir was very low due to the resident's high consumption.
Suspicion is that residents are filling containers due to fear of water cuts over the weekend.
However, no water cuts are anticipated in that area, as long as residents use water sparingly.
We have since augmented the supply and the reservoir is starting to fill up again.
By midday we expect everyone in that area and surroundings to have water.
The Municipality would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused.

NEW WATER RESTRICTIONS implemented with immediate effect.
The Chelsea reservoir has recovered overnight and reached 34% after weeks of battling with water supply.

All the suburbs supplied by the Emeraldhill reservoir have water, except for upper parts of Lovemore Heights.
Work is being done to pump into the upper reservoir for residents to have water. It is envisaged that by midday water will be restored.
The Municipality urges residents to continue using water sparingly.

The areas supplied by this reservoir include Malabar, Westering, Lingo Grange, Sherwood, Hunters Retreat, parts of Rowallan Park, Parsonsvlei and Greenbushes.
Lovemore Heights which is supplied by the Emaraldhill reservoir remains affected by the water disruptions while Walmer Heights, parts of Lovemore Park, Mount Pleasant, Miramar, Charlo, Walmer Downs, Overbaakens, Fairview and parts of Newtown Park continue to have water supply.
