PUBLIC NOTICE: INTRODUCTION OF THE 144 HOURS WEEKLY SHEDDING PROGRAMME.
The system, will therefore, with immediate effect be closed to allow for the recovery of critical reservoirs.
The City of Bulawayo would like to advise members of the public that the City is currently experiencing challenges with the supply and availability of raw water due to low storage in its supply dams and the decommissioning of Lower Ncema with effect from Friday, 15th May 2020.
Drawing of raw water from the remaining dams of Insiza, Mtshabezi and Inyankuni has resulted in reduced abstraction and to that effect, Council will introduce a 144 – hour weekly shedding programme shown below with effect from Monday, 18 May 2020.
The water shedding programme is subject to change if other raw water initiatives are successful or the situation further deteriorates.
All the areas that are on high ground and are likely to be affected for more than the 144hrs and in such instances will have water supplied by bowsers.
Residents are urged to continue conserving water.
