City of Tshwane wishes to inform the residents of Bronkhorstspruit, Zithobeni,
Rethabiseng and Ekangala in Region 7 and the Thembisile Hani Local Municipality
in Mpumalanga about the anticipated sporadic water supply interruption in the
area from August until November 2020.
interruptions come as a result of the intensity of the repair work that is
being effected on continuous component failures due to the ageing
infrastructure at the Bronkhorstspruit Water Treatment Plant. It is estimated
that the restoration period will take about 12 weeks.
repairs at the water treatment plant include casting impellers, repairing
casings, installing truss assemblies, replacing bearings, and doing laser
alignment and electrical work on the motors.
City is mindful and concerned about the impact of this essential work that
needs to be carried out and remains committed to resolving this challenge
within the provided timeframe.
a service interruption occur at any given time, the City has arranged for water
tankers to supply water to its customers.
