Water supply interruption on 10 November 2017

Water supply interruption on 10 November 2017
Our Water and Sanitation Department will shut down the Tygerberg Molteno water pipeline, which feeds water into the Cape Town CBD and surrounding areas. The shutdown will take place on Friday 10 November 2017 for 12 hours, from 22:00. A number of areas will experience low water pressure or reduced water supply during this time.
The affected areas include:
  • Cape Town CBD
  • Cape Town Harbour (Transnet)
  • Lower Woodstock
  • Maitland
  • Paarden Eiland
Green Point and Sea Point may also be affected.
The shutdown will take place because we need to assess the condition of the pipeline as we prepare for the Cape Town Harbour emergency desalination plant.
Please keep up to 10 litres of drinking water available per day for essential use during this time.
Remember to close all taps when not in use to prevent damage/flooding when water supply is restored.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but this is a necessary step in our efforts to beat this drought – with your help.
We thank you for your support, Team Cape Town.
