Mandela’s hospital receives 20000 litres of emergency water

This is yet another example of why rain water tanks at hospitals are a good idea, especially in South Africa.  Even if rainwater harvesting systems are not installed, a series of large water tanks for storing municipal water, for example 10000 litre tanks or 20000 litre tanks, could see the hospital through until water supplies are restored.

Pretoria – The Pretoria hospital treating anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela received thousands of litres in emergency water deliveries on Thursday after a planned maintenance water cut lasted longer than expected, radio reported.

About 20000 litres were rushed to the Mediclinic Heart Hospital, where Nelson Mandela has been receiving treatment for a lung infection for nearly two weeks, radio 702 reported late on Thursday.

An additional 10000 litres of water were put on standby.

The water cut had been planned, but “it was anticipated that it wouldn’t be that long”, city spokesman Blessing Manale told radio 702.

There was no comment immediately available from the hospital. – AFP
