Water Interruption Notice

The Rusteburg Local Municiplity is currently experiencing water supply challenges from the Magalies Vaalkop and Bospoort plants due to damages on the system. The maintenance team of Engineers is working on the repairs. Water tankers have been dispatched to affected areas.

Magalies Water (MW) would like to notify ALL consumers on the Vaalkop Water supply scheme line about a scheduled plant shut down at the Vaalkop WTW. The work forms part of the current plant upgrade and necessitates a plant shut down in order to install a new transformer at the raw water pump station and interconnect the new raw water pipeline to the existing infrastructure. This will affect the entire plant which means that no production will be possible during this period.
