The three supply Dams previously decommissioned have been recommissioned. However, water supply to residents is still constrained. The New Flowserve pumps which are replacing the obsolete KSB Pumps have been installed at Ncema and Fernhill Pump Stations and are still undergoing the technical commissioning. Council is working flat out with the Contractor to ensure that pumps are fully operational as soon as possible. The Water shedding schedule will be reviewed at the end of January 2021.

NB. Global % increase (∆) to date due to the recent rains is 21.93 of overall dam capacity.
