Water Cuts To Worsen For Bulawayo Residents
Several suburbs in Bulawayo will go for a prolonged period of time without water due to repairs being done on the 30-inch pipeline at Ncema Water Works that supplies clean water to the Tuli Reservoir.
The affected suburbs include Manningdale, Waterford, Matsheumhlope, Ilanda, Khumalo, Mahatshula, Northend, Riverside, Buenavista, Lochview, Burnside, Killarney, Parklands, Suburbs, City Centre, How Mine, Esigodini and Douglasdale.
The maintenance work will commence on March 5, and be completed on March 7. This was revealed in a statement issued by Bulawayo Town Clerk, Christopher Dube. Said, Dube;
Efforts are being made to build the Tuli Reservoir to maximum capacity to reduce the impact of the shutdown. The shutdown period has been programmed to seamlessly follow and is expected to work along and coincide with the shedding period to reduce the impact of the interruption. The repairs on the 30-inch pipe are expected to take at most 48hrs.
Bulawayo has been experiencing water rationing as water levels in supply dams have fallen significantly.
