Bulawayo City Council


Water Supplies Interruption 72 Hours

The City of Bulawayo would like to advise members of the public of water supply interruptions to all areas fed by the Tuli Reservoir. This is due to a burst which occurred on the clear water line supplying the Tuli reservoir between Ncema and Fernhill Pump Stations. The following areas are likely to be affected:

Lochview, Sunninghill, Marlands, Glencoe, Riverside, Waterford, Manningdale, Willsgrove, Buenavista, Douglasdale, Fortunes gate, Selborne Park, Matsheumhlope Esigodini, Imbizo Barracks, Parklands, Khumalo, Queens Park, Suburbs, Mahatshula, Woodville, Kingsdale, Killarney

The City of Bulawayo will temporarily suspend the current 72 hour water shedding programme in the Tuli Reservoir zone until the burst pipe is repaired. Residents are advised that supplies will be restored once the repair works have been completed and pumping has resumed and the Tuli reservoir has been raised to acceptable levels.

Residents are requested to conserve water and keep taps turned off in the event that the work is completed sooner.

The City of Bulawayo wishes to apologise to its valued consumers for the inconvenience caused.

Date: Wednesday, 26 October 2022.
