Ethekwini Newsflash 09 November 2020 For Immediate Release Interruption Of Water Supply For South Of Durban

EThekwini Municipality would like to inform residents of the interruption of water in the South Region. The interruption will affect the supply of water in some areas in the South of Durban. 

Water Disruptions

The Municipality’s Water and Sanitation Unit will undertake a planned shutdown of the South Coast Augmentation pipeline to replace a faulty scour valve and a leaking air valve on the 800mm diameter steel trunk main, supplying Amanzimtoti waterworks.  

The process will commence on 10 November 2020 from 5 pm to 11 November 2020 at 6 am. During this process, there will be zero incoming flow, and thus downstream areas including eThekwini reservoirs and Amanzimtoti works will have limited system input volume. 

For this reason, the following areas might experience poor pressure or no water towards latter times of the shutdown period, amid the construction:

Amanzimtoti CBD
Isipingo
Athlone Park

Warner Beach
