The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department will be completing work on a part of the water supply network feeding parts of Brackenfell this evening, 17 May 2018. It is expected that the water supply to the area will be disrupted between 20:00 on 17 May and 05:00 on 18 May 2018 to facilitate the work.
The affected area is bordered by Frans Conradie Drive (M25) to the south, Brackenfell Boulevard (M100) to the west, Okavango Road (M137) to the east, and the N1 to the north.
Careful consideration has been given to the planning of this work to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply in the affected area.
The water supply network across the City is divided into reticulation zones which are smaller and much more manageable sections of the large network for purposes of maintenance and upgrades. This work forms part of the City’s Water Demand Management Plan and will significantly reduce the occurrence of pipe bursts and subsequent water losses.
Residents are advised to store water in clean sealed containers for domestic use during this period. Please also ensure taps remain in the off position to prevent damage to property and water wastage if supply is restored ahead of schedule.
The City regrets any inconvenience caused.
