Harare Residents To Spend Weekend Without Water
Harare City Council corporate communications manager Mr Michael Chideme said residents will spend the weekend without water as council will shut down Morton Jaffray Waterworks and Warren Control to fix leaks and replace a pump.
He said the shutdown is expected to affect all of Harare’s suburbs with water expected to be restored on Monday and Tuesday in some areas because council needs time to fill reservoirs after resuming pumping before residents can access water. Said Chideme:
I confirm that a shutdown of Morton Jaffray and Warren Control is scheduled from 1600 hours on Friday February 2 to Sunday February 4 at 1600hrs. It is to allow the removal of fishing nets from and fixing of wire ropes on periscopes. During the same time will also fix leaking bypass bends at Warren Control, replace one pump rotor at Warren and fix some leaks in transmission chambers.
