City advises of planned water supply disruption to the Blue Downs and Kuils River areas<p>​The purpose of this work is to realign the water supply infrastructure, so that Belhar Road in Highbury can be widened to help reduce traffic congestion in the area.</p><p>Areas of Dennemere, Austinville, Blackheath Industrial, Happy Valley, Summerville, Hagley, Saxenburg, Ou Nooiensfontein, Nuwe Nooiensfontein, Dannarand, Sarepta, Kalkfontein, Highbury, Voelvlei, Mabille Park and Wesbank will be affected by the shutdown.</p><p>Residents can expect a reduction in the water pressure or the possible disruption to their water supply during both the test shutdown and the final connection next week. A water tanker will be on standby in the area to provide water, where required, for domestic use during this period. The test will also help determine which areas will experience the greatest disruption, to better target relief efforts next weekend.</p><p>Residents are advised to store water in clean, sealed containers in advance and to ensure that their taps are left in the closed position while works are underway to prevent any water loss and/or water damage when the supply is restored.</p><p>The City regrets any inconvenience caused, however, this maintenance will help reduce and prevent future water wastage.</p>2021-05-20T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#dd9b5445-92f0-4a44-9ca3-647380446295;L0|#0dd9b5445-92f0-4a44-9ca3-647380446295|Water disruption;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GPP|#8f4fc986-7316-49fe-aa93-6ae4c15611bf;GPP|#eea2ec5e-e535-4764-9094-bb6325d8d14510
