Although the NMBM JOC Centre confirmed that the entire Metro would have water last night, the crisis is not resolved and residents for the most part are still sitting without water. In Summerstrand, 2 reservoirs are supplying Summerstrand, one of which is for the bottom part along Marine Drive (water is running well) and the other which is currently struggling to supply water, affecting the top area of Summerstrand above Brighton Drive, including Gomery Area, and above Strandfontein Rd.
Information conveyed from our counsellors:
– There will be a water-tank truck at the Mercado Centre – Summerbreezz Spar
Newton Park Third Avenue Dip area
Carrington Road in Charlo
Seaview Road in the vicinity of Bushy Park
Water Road and Victoria Road are currently being monitored and could be closed at any time
Motorists are warned to use extreme caution and adhere to safe following distances as road surfaces are slippery!
|MUNICIPALITY WORKING TO RESTORE WATER SUPPLY FOR HUMEWOOD & WALMER, after the main water supply (500 mm in diameter pipe) failed late last night between First and Seventh Avenue. No timeframe for the restoration of supply is available at this stage.|
