Due to bad weather during the weekend, strong winds uprooted some trees breaking 6 municipal power lines at Howiesonspoort Dam, that affected the pumping system and we are unable to pump. Our technicians are busy at the plant trying to restore power but due to bad weather and slippery road uphill they are experiencing some difficulties. The whole of Grahamstown is affected only the CBD area has water supply.
We are doing the best we can to restore power so that water services can be able to run smoothly again.
If residents need water to be delivered to their areas they can call the Engineering Dept @ (046) 603 6063 between 08h00 and 16h30 or Fire Dept @ (046) 603 6000 between 16h30 and 08h00
