WILDERNESS NEWS - The George Municipality says reservoirs at Touwsranten and Hoekwil have run dry as water consumption is too high in Wilderness and surrounds.
Water trucks are to be stationed at the Hoekwil shop and Touwsranten Community Centre as soon as possible, while the situation is being addressed. If trucks are not there, they will return after filling up.
All other areas are being supplied but overall consumption remains too high, according to municipal spokesperson Chantel Edwards-Klose.
Water pressure remains low
"Residents are reminded that the system remains vulnerable until the repair on the Kaaiman’s Railway Bridge has been finalised.
Residents are requested to report any ‘new’ areas experiencing a complete lack of water at the numbers below so it can be investigated and addressed."
Interim water supply
5 x 5000 litre water tanks are located at Bundu Supersave and along Remskoen Drive.
Water trucks have been reinstated to supplement reservoirs so they don’t run dry and to support known areas where shortfalls occur.
Update on repair planning and safety considerations
Work on the temporary pipeline along Kaaiman’s Railway Bridge continues and is going well. Work will continue tomorrow.
