The City of Cape Town will be upgrading water infrastructure in Scotts Estate, Hout Bay on Tuesday 5 April 2018 and therefore there will be a planned shutdown this evening which will result in supply disruptions in the area during this period. Read more below:
The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department is performing infrastructure upgrades and maintenance across the metro in its effort to provide a reliable water supply service to the residents of Cape Town. The City wants to ensure that residents are aware of the work being done in their area. The planned work in Hout Bay will be done to upgrade the high-pressure feed to Bavianskloof and the long-term pressure management in the lower lying areas. This work will assist with the City’s ongoing water-saving efforts.
The work is scheduled to take place this evening, Thursday 5 April 2018, from 22:00 to 04:00 and will affect Andrews Road and the high-lying areas above this road; the Baviaanskloof area and Military Heights next to Chapmans Peak (the areas within the red line in the map below).
At all times careful consideration will be given to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply in the affected areas.
Please keep all taps closed to avoid water loss or flooding when supply is restored. Supply might be restored sooner than expected.
You are advised to store water for essential purposes only during this time. Do not store an excessive amount of municipal water.
The City regrets any inconvenience caused.
