Urgent water supply interruption

Magalies Water (MW) would like to notify ALL consumers on the Vaalkop Water supply scheme about a scheduled ESKOM power supply interruption at the Vaalkop WTW substation.

This will affect power supply to the entire plant which means that no production will be possible during this period.
