The Nelson Mandela Bay municipality recently issued a warning to its residents, saying that it will be cutting off water supplies to most areas.
This is due to the shortage of water in the region as a result of a huge demand on the system which was rapidly depleting both the Kouga and Loerie dams‚ with the Loerie Dam also emptying fast.
Metro spokesman Mthubanzi Mniki encouraged people to call the customer care line if they do not have water: “Call the customer care line if you are without water”.
“We have also distinguished that water leaks are actually caused by broken pipes. We have been asking our selves for a very long time what the cause of leaks is, and now we have found the answer.” he said.
