Water supply disruption expected for Klein Constantia

Residents have been told to prepare for the hours without water.

Water services to the Klein Constantia area will be disrupted tonight, Thursday October 13, from 9pm until 4am as the City’s Water and Sanitation Department conducts zero pressure testing.

Residents and businesses owners in the area bounded by Constantia Main Road and Spaanschemat River Road are advised to store water for use during this period and ensure that their taps are closed to avoid water loss or damage when the supply is restored.

The CIty’s Water and Sanitation Department says, “zero pressure tests are being done to see if there are any unmapped inflows that need to be taken into account before smart pressure reducing valves are installed. Managing water pressure more effectively reduces the possibility of pipe bursts and water wastage.”
