Water supply disruption to part of Southfield

Part of Southfield will be without water on Wednesday June 8, from 8am to 6pm, to enable the safe completion of construction work on the main water supply to the area bounded by Pretorius Street, Dirkie Uys Street, Bergzig Street, Wolmarans Street, Prince Royal Road and Prince George Drive.

The City of Cape Town said the work involves replacing a few lengths of pipe of the existing water supply network in Concord Street as per the water and sanitation directorate’s criteria for pipe replacement.

Residents are advised to store water upfront in clean, sealed containers for domestic use during this period and to ensure that their taps are closed to avoid water loss and/or damage when the supply is restored.

This work forms part of the water and sanitation directorate’s pipe replacement and upgrade programme which addresses the need for water supply network upgrades, in particular the distribution system to the consumers.
