Update: Nooitgedagt Water Treatment Works

Published: September 06, 2020

<< BACK TO NEWS
Mayoral Committee Member for Infrastructure and Engineering, Mongameli Bobani wishes to inform residents that electricity was restored to the Nooitgedagt Water Treatment Works around 16:00. 

The effect of this outage is that no water was treated at the works resulting in 4 main reservoirs running empty as well as their supply zones. This includes the supply to the Coega Special Economic Zone.

Nooitgedagt is currently on maximum production, but the supply is not sufficient enough to start the 2 booster pump stations to transfer water to Greenbushes to supply the Western Areas.

Depending on the rate of filling the systems the booster pump stations will only be able to start around midnight. 

If all goes according to plan, Western Areas will have low pressure water in the morning.

The Municipality apologises for any inconvenience caused and urges residents to continue using water sparingly.
