City advises of water supply disruption affecting Montague Gardens area

The City’s Water and Sanitation Department will be doing an urgent dummy shutdown on the water supply main to the Montague Gardens area on Sunday,10 April 2022 from 09:00 until 13:00. This dummy shutdown will determine the extent of the impacted area and is in preparation for the shutdown, which will happen from 21:00 on Wednesday, 13 April 2022 until 05:00 on Thursday, 14 April 2022 to install a control valve. In both instances, the water supply to the area will be disrupted. Read more below:    

The Water and Sanitation Directorate needs to urgently upgrade the water supply network and install a control valve to prevent a large area being shut off when there is a pipe burst in the area.   

Careful consideration has been given to the planning of this work to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply in the affected area.

Consumers are kindly advised to store water in clean, sealed containers upfront for domestic use during this period and to ensure that their taps are closed to avoid water loss and/or damage when the supply is restored.

The City regrets any inconvenience caused, but it is imperative that it upgrades and maintains its water supply infrastructure to benefit its consumers.
