The City of Cape Town advises consumers in the Faure area of a planned water pipeline shutdown which will take place on Tuesday, 7 August 2018 from 10:00 until 14:00. This shutdown is necessary to assist in the planning work for a longer shutdown project planned for later in the year.
The Faure and surrounding areas including Macassar, sections of Blue Downs, Somerset West, Firgrove, Strand and Gordon’s Bay may experience low water pressure as a result of this work.
The City apologises for any inconvenience.
Residents are asked to keep between 5 to 10 litres of drinking water for essential use if required but do not to store water excessively. Any outages are expected to be of short duration.
Please also keep taps closed to prevent water damage in the event of water being restored after a supply disruption.
