Maintenance was done on the steel pumping main to Hilldrop reservoirs on the 10th of June 2015. The reservoir levels were expected to drop during the 8 hour outage period and low pressure was expected in areas feeding from this reservoir but no water outages were expected. The Hilldrop rising main popped again where they worked last night hence we have water supply interruptions today. At least we may expect another 4 to 8 hours before they pump again. The affected areas are Arbor Park; Riverside; Industrial Lennoxton; Paradise and Central Town. Sunny ridge Amajuba and Ncandu Park have also been affected. Eleven trucks have been deployed to deliver water to the above mentioned areas as well as the hospitals; police station and prison.
