REDUCED SUPPLY TO THE EMERALD HILL ZONE
August 4th, 2022.
As previously communicated, the allocation from the Kromme system has been restricted to only 30 megalitres per day. The demand on this system still outweighs the supply and to minimise the impact of this, the Metro has developed certain augmentation schemes to supplement this deficit.
A faulty valve was discovered on one of these systems and it had since been removed. This reduced the augmentation potential today and this caused reservoirs supplied from the Kromme system to lose storage. This could cause low pressure or water supply disruptions.
Work is nearing completion and thereafter, the transfer supply system can be commissioned again. Water supply will continue to be restored throughout the night.
We therefore require all residents to keep their water consumption to a minimum so that storage can accumulate once again.
The following areas may experience low water pressure or water disruptions:
1. Parts of Walmer
2. Walmer Township
3. Walmer Downs
4. Walmer Heights
5. Mangold Park 6. Glen Hurd 7. Mangold Park 8. Glendinningvale 9. Pari Park, Gelndore Road
12. Newton Park
15. Greenacres Hospital
16. St Georges Hospital
17. Parts of Cotsworld
18. Richmond Hill 19. Parts of Schauderville
21. Mill Park
22. Parts of Central
23. Mount Croix
25. Deal Party

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience the has caused.
