These areas in eThekwini will be affected by the planned water shutdown

The eThekwini Municipality said the northern aqueduct pipeline will be shutdown at 8pm on Tuesday, in order to install new valves.

The City said this form part of continuous efforts to restore water supply to areas that have been experiencing prolonged water outages in the North.

“The shutdown of this pipeline that carries water from Durban Heights Treatment Works to the areas in the north will result in interruption of water supply while work is being undertaken,” said City spokesperson Gugu Sisilana.

“This is part of ongoing work that the Municipality has undertaken on the northern aqueduct to ensure efficiency of water flow and to increase pressure within the pipeline.”

The City said a larger part of work has been completed.

“This includes repairing leaks and replacement of air valves in other sections of the pipeline. However, the outstanding valves require modification to fit into the network which also requires a shut down.”

The work is expected to be completed on Wednesday at around 5pm.

Sisilana said the reservoirs will be open during peak period in the morning and afternoon on Wednesday.

“However, water supply will depend on consumption patterns,” said Sisilana urging residents to use water sparingly.

Water tankers will be deployed to affected areas.
