30-hour water shutdown

The shutdown will start at 8am on Thursday and will end at approximately 2pm the next day. However the utility has softened the impact by advising that not all areas will be without water for the full duration.
Umgeni Water, has however, not ruled out that faults may occur which could mean some areas might experience water shortages. The utility in conjunction with the Msunduzi municipality has increased the flow to core reservoirs to ensure that there is enough water stored over this period.
Shami Harichunder, Corporate Stakeholder Manager at Umgeni Water said a decision had been taken in conjunction with three Water Services Authorities (WSAs) namely eThekwini Metro, uMgungundlovu District Municipality and Msunduzi Local Municipality with regards to a shut-down of Midmar Water Works and DV Harris Water Treatment Plant for essential work to be carried out in order to enhance assurance of water supply.
The Msunduzi municipality’s spokesperson, Thobeka Mafumbatha said, “We urge our residents to be extra vigilant in the use of water over this period so we can maximise our storage and therefore have an uninterrupted water supply. We regret any inconvenience to our customers and we will endeavour to ensure a continuous and uninterrupted water supply.”
