Phatsima Water Restrictions

Residents of Phatsima, are hereby notified that there will be scheduled water restrictions in their area. The implementation of the water demand management in the area is due to detected illegal water connections on the supply lines before the Phatsima reservoir. The implementation of the water restrictions will continue until illegal water connections have been successfully removed.
The illegal water connections have caused low reservoir levels and no water supply to Phatsima residents. Residents are advised to use water sparingly during this period until water supply to the area improves. The water restrictions will be implemented as follows: 6pm – 6 am daily.
The Municipality would like apologise to residents for the inconvenience this may cause.
