The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department will complete its installation of a 300mm connection to a new pressure management system on the water supply line situated in Main Road, Hout Bay (near the intersection of Blue Valley) on Monday 2 July 2012.
This will result in the disruption of the water supply to residents in the upper section of Hout Bay, below Constantia Nek between 09:00 and 15:00 on 2 July.
The area includes the properties situated along Main Road and above (to the east of) the intersections of Blue Valley Road; and Valley Road above (to the east of) Park Road.
Residents are kindly requested to store sufficient water in clean sealed containers for domestic consumption to minimise the inconvenience.
A water tanker will be located close to the intersection of Disa Road and Main Road should residents require any water for domestic consumption during the shutdown period.
Residents are also reminded that, although the City has made all efforts to shut down the water supply by closing various valves for this purpose, they should treat the water supply to/on their premises as uninterrupted (normal) and be cognisant of the fact that unattended open taps could lead to water wastage and possible damage to property once water supply is brought back on line.
The City apologises for any inconvenience caused while work is underway. It is imperative that the Water and Sanitation Department takes necessary interventions to reduce water losses in the supply system through pressure reductions. This will enhance the Department’s ability to ensure a continued supply of quality drinking water to all residents in Cape Town. A significant reduction in unaccounted for water has been achieved in the last three years through pressure management interventions.
