We are currently experiencing difficulties supplying water to certain storage reservoirs due to a fault on the electrical supply at the Elandsjagt WTW. This has placed the system at risk as storage conditions remain low due to the ongoing drought.
Contractors are currently assessing requirements to execute repairs.
The situation will be monitored and water tankers will be made available if reservoir storage levels deplete, their positions will be communicated throughout social media and can also be enquired from 0800205050. Consumers are requested to use water sparingly and not to stockpile, this will accelerate the depletion of storage.
The welcome rains which fell over large parts of the Eastern Cape coastal belt and adjacent interior this week have had little impact on the level of Nelson Mandela Bay's main supply dams. The average combined capacity of the Metro's main supply dams is currently at 29.43%.
