The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department will be completing a new connection between the existing and the new 300mm diameter water main that is currently being installed as part of the Muizenberg Main Road Rehabilitation Project (Phase3).

 

The 300mm diameter water main in Main Road, Muizenberg will therefore be shut off between 08:30 and 16:00 on Tuesday 04 November 2014. This will result in the disruption of the water supply to the area above Muizenberg Main Road from Atlantic Road to Bailey’s Cottage in Muizenberg. High lying properties along the Main Road between Muizenberg and Clovelly may also experience low pressure during this shutdown period.

 

Residents are kindly requested to store sufficient water upfront in clean, sealed containers for domestic consumption purposes during the shutdown period.

 

Residents are also advised to ensure that their taps are kept shut whilst the work is in progress to eliminate the possibility of water loss or damage being incurred once the water supply and pressure is restored to the area.

 

The reticulation infrastructure in this area is currently being upgraded in terms of future master planning requirements which aims to meet the future water demand needs in the Far South.

 

The City apologises for any inconvenience caused, but it is imperative that the infrastructure is maintained and upgraded to the benefit of the citizens.
