The Tshwane metro municipality has told residents to fetch water from water tanks installed at different parts in the city of Pretoria, an official said on Wednesday.
“People must please bring their own containers if they want to fill up water bottles,” spokeswoman Dikeledi Phiri said.
Residents in Sinoville, Annlin, Dorandia, Pretoria North, Wonderboom and areas along the R101 up to Rooiwal were without water on Wednesday morning due to a damaged water pipe.
“The water tanks will remain until the water provision to the (affected) areas has been restored,” said Phiri.
She said full water supply was expected to be restored on Wednesday evening Ä a shift from the afternoon deadline given earlier by the municipality.
“The city’s water and sanitation division indicated that they will release water into the system at a very slow rate to prevent damage due to pressure in the system,” said Phiri.
The interruption was caused on Tuesday by workers who accidentally dislodged a 600mm pipe in the Annlin suburb.
This resulted in a substantial amount of water escaping from the reservoir and flooding an estimated 30 homes. – Sapa
By some accounts, this water supply problem in Pretoria is persisting. This is a situation that no home owner or business should be placed in. Many other municipalities around South Africa have chronic water supply issues. The solution is the private installation of water tanks (and water tank stands if required) at homes and businesses. The water tanks can be used to store municipal water for times of water supply interruptions. Water tanks can also be used for rainwater harvesting to store rainwater for garden and domestic use.
